Myopia: focal point of light rays form before retina

What is myopia

Myopia, technically known as hypometropia, is a visual impairment caused most often by the presence of the very long eye bulb. Excessive curvature of the lens or cornea can also cause myopia.

In a myopic person's eye, light rays converge on a focal point before the retina.
