Myopia – commonly known as shortsightedness – is a refractive error that affects approximately 34% of the UK population. It occurs when your eyeball is slightly elongated, causing rays of light to focus in front of your retina, rather than on its surface. This makes objects close to your eyes look clear, whilst distant objects appear blurry.
But what if you could correct this refractive error without relying on eyewear and without having to resort to laser eye surgery?
