Myopia (short sightedness)

Closeup of an eye

This condition occurs when the eyeball is too long for the focusing power of the eye, causing blurred vision when looking at distant objects. As the object comes closer, the focus moves back towards the retina at the back of the eye so it becomes clearer, thus myopic people can frequently read without glasses.

Myopia can be corrected with refractive surgery and Mr Gerard Ainsworth would be pleased to discuss options with you.
