Myopia Shortsightedness

Shortsightedness (myopia) blurs distance vision (e.g., the board in class), and the prescribing of spectacles for myopia by eye care practitioners is usually a fairly straightforward decision. An optometrist might consider prescribing a refractive correction if the myopia reduced the binocular visual acuity to 6/9 and would almost certainly prescribe if it was reduced to 6/12. Low to moderate myopia will not impair near vision and some studies have even found a correlation between myopia and above-average reading performance (Evans, 2001).
