Short-sightedness, or myopia, is a very common eye condition that causes the loss of vision for objects that are far or at a distance. As the name suggests, objects or words appearing close to the eye can be easily seen. Short-sightedness can either be mild, where treatment may not be required, to severe which may cause the vision to be affected significantly. Short-sightedness mostly runs in the family and is associated with looking at books or computer screens for a longer period of time at a close range.
