Glasses, contacts : Near sighted people see better up close without glasses, and need glasses for distance vision. Glasses, contact lenses and surgery can be used to help a near sighted person see better.

Can't see far things: Nearsightedness (myopia) is a visual acuity problem in which a person cannot see distant objects clearly, but can see near objects just fine. His eyes are unable to clearly focus when looking at objects more than about 10 feet away. An very nearsighted person (high myopia) may be unable to see clearly objects only one or two feet away.
