What Is Myopia?

Approximately 30% of Canadians have myopia, a common refractive error. If you have myopia, nearby objects appear clearly while faraway images look blurry. Many people develop this condition when they’re children. It has been projected that by the year 2050, approximately 50% of the world’s population will suffer from myopia.
