What’s the difference between myopia and hyperopia?
November 25, 2020
There many different vision problems and conditions. Myopia and hyperopia are two of the most common refractive eye errors. What this means is that they are caused by eye abnormalities that affect the ability of the eyes to focus light on the part of the eye called the retina. The retina is a patch of light-sensitive cells at the very back of the eye, and its job is to pass signals between the eyes and the brain to tell us what we can see. When the light doesn’t hit the retina properly, the message isn’t correct, and our brain interprets a blurred image.
