What causes short sightedness?

What causes short sightedness?

Genetics+environment: Myopia, in a simple model, depends on refractive index of cornea-tear film, lens, length of eye. So if any of these are altered so that the image focuses in front of the retina (steep k, longer eye, higher refractive lens index, etc.), then you become short sighted. The anatomy of the eye is inherited and a lot of near work can affect it. ...Read more

Can myopia (short sightedness ) treated naturally without surgery or glasses? I heard that sunlight could help

Can myopia (short sightedness ) treated naturally without surgery or glasses? I heard that sunlight could help

No: Sunlight will do nothing for myopia. This condition is due to an abnormal shape of the eye that results in refractive error (think of a lens directing sunlight to a specific point). It is a very common occurrence and by itself, results in no significant health issues. But to correct this so you can see in focus, you need contacts, glasses, or refractive surgery (e.g. Lasik). ...Read more
