In brief: Ametropia

You may be nearsighted, farsighted, and/or with astigmatism.
These are common findings in the population, where the light bending (refracting) power of your cornea and lens doesn't match the distance to the retina. Glasses or contacts can neutralize this. More permanent correction can be accomplished with laser vision correction, such as lasik.
