The Effects Of Myopia

Myopia can have significant impacts on an individual's vision and overall eye health. Here are some of the common effects:

  1. Blurred vision: People with myopia can see nearby objects clearly but distant objects appear blurred.
  2. Eye strain and fatigue: Individuals with myopia may experience eye strain, fatigue, and headaches due to the constant effort required to focus on distant objects.
  3. Difficulty driving and seeing road signs: People with myopia may have difficulty driving, especially at night or in low light conditions, and seeing road signs from a distance.
  4. Increased risk of eye conditions: Myopia increases the risk of developing other eye health concerns such as cataracts, glaucoma , and retinal detachment .
  5. Reduced quality of life: People with myopia may find it challenging to participate in enriching activities such as sports, outdoor activities, and social events.
  6. Higher healthcare costs: Treating myopia requires eyeglasses, contact lenses, or refractive surgery, which can lead to higher healthcare costs.
