Signs and Symptoms of Myopia
Myopia interferes with distance vision, so if you struggle to see things that are far such as information boards on the road, presentations, the registration number of the car in front of you, subtitles on the TV screen, etc. chances are, you’re near sighted. In most cases, when you squint your eyes, the vision gets slightly better.
If your child sits very close to the TV, and/or holds their reading material closer than normal, they may be near sighted, and will have to have their eyes tested in order to determine the degree of the myopia.
If you or your loved one experiences any of these symptoms, an eye test is indicated.
