Myopia is a refractive defect of the eye in which light produces image focus in front of the retina when the sight adjustment is off balance. People with myopia see nearby objects perfectly, if not almost, clearly. Distant objects are blurred since the eyeball is too long or the cornea is too steep.
Basically it means that one is nearsighted.
a condition of the eye in which parallel raysare focused in front of the retina, objects being seendistinctly only when near to the eye; nearsightedness
