Short-sightedness (myopia) is a very common eye condition where you see up close objects more clearly than those that are distant. 

Symptoms can include blurred vision as well as headaches, squinting and eye strain. The condition can be easily treated.

Short-sightedness (myopia) happens when the shape of your eye is too long. This means that light is focused just in front of your retina, the light-sensitive part of your eye, rather than on to it. This blurs distant objects.
