What happens in myopia
Because the eye is longer than it should, the light rays from a distant object instead of forming on the retina of the eye, which covers the wall of the eyeball,it is formed in front of it in the eye.
|NORMAL EYE||EYE WITH MYOPIA|
With our glasses or contact lenses, we manage to bring the image back to be formed on the retina and to see it with clarity.
What happens in hyperopia
In hyperopia, because the eye is shorter than it should, the opposite happens. The image is formed behind the retina.
