Near Sightedness and Astigmatism
Near sightedness (Myopia) is a condition whereby an individual cannot see things that are far, only those that are near. If you have to get closer to the TV to read the subtitles, chances are, you’re near sighted. Astigmatism is when the cornea of the eye is oval shaped instead of spherical, resulting in the bending of light rays. These bent rays form a distorted image, resulting in poor vision. Both myopia and astigmatism can be corrected using specs or contact lenses.
