Myopia

SHORTsighted; enhanced ability to see close objects, inability to focus on distant objects. This occurs when one's eyeball is too long or too big for the focusing system of the eye, or when the eye's focusing mechanism is too strong (excess positive diopter), thus causing light rays to focus in front of the retina, making far objects appear blurry.
