Short-sightedness (Myopia)

Human eye has the ability to focus image accurately on the retina so that we are
able to see clear.


Short-sightedness occurs when the size of an eyeball is too long relative to the focusing ability of the eye itself, as a result, image is mistakenly focused in front of the retina, rather than on the retina surface.


If you have shortsightedness, you’d often find it difficult to see things further away.


You may have short-sightedness if you’re having trouble seeing:

  • Road signs
  • TV or cinema screens
  • People’s faces in the distance


Our optometrist can assess your eyesight and visual requirements. Prescription glasses or contact lens may be prescribed to resolve the problem. They can also advise on other options such as orthokeratology and laser corrective surgery.
