Care Tips for People with Myopia

Myopia, commonly called near-sightedness, is a condition where a person suffers from not being able to see far objects clearly, although nearby objects appear clear enough. It is a heritable condition, but one that could not be detected early in life and only progresses as a person ages. It often becomes stable when a person reaches the age of 20. Situation_Myope
