Some other signs of myopia are eyestrain, headaches, squinting, excessive blinking, rubbing your eyes frequently.
Cause – what caused your eye problem?
Myopia is a common problem that occurs when the eyeball is too long compared to the focusing point of the lens and the cornea. So, the light entering your eyes comes to focus before reaching the retina. Myopia sometimes is caused by the cornea or the lens being too curved for the eyeball length. Usually myopia develops in childhood and stabilizes in early adulthood but in some cases it continues to develop with age.
