Myopia vs. Hypermetropia

Published:

Myopianoun

(pathology) A disorder of the vision where distant objects appear blurred because the eye focuses their images in front of the retina instead of on it.

Hypermetropianoun

hyperopia

Myopianoun

(figurative) A lack of imagination, discernment or long-range perspective in thinking or planning.

Hypermetropianoun

An abnormal condition of the eye in which, through shortness of the eyeball or fault of the refractive media, the rays of light come to a focus behind the retina, making vision for distant objects better than for near objects; farsightedness; - now most commonly called hyperopia. Cf. Emmetropia.

Myopianoun

Nearsightedness; shortsightedness; a condition of the eye in which the rays from distant object are brought to a focus before they reach the retina, and hence form an indistinct image; while the rays from very near objects are normally converged so as to produce a distinct image. It is corrected by the use of a concave lens.

Hypermetropianoun

abnormal condition in which vision for distant objects is better than for near objects
