Correct Answer - Option 3 : Myopia

The correct answer is Myopia.

  • Myopia is an eye disorder.
  • In myopia, the eyeball is too long for the normal focusing power of the eye. As a result, images of distant objects appear blurred.
  • The nearsighted (myopic) eye converges rays from a distant object in front of the retina thus, they are diverging when they strike the retina, producing a blurry image.
  • A concave lens (minus powered) is placed in front of a myopic eye, moving the image back to the retina and clarifying the image.

  • Hypermetropia is a condition in which the individual can focus only on faraway objects which is why it is called longsightedness
  • A cataract is a condition in which there is a decrease in the vision due to the clouding of the lens.
  • The cornea is the transparent part of the eye that covers the front portion of the eye.
    • It covers the pupil, iris, and anterior chamber.
    • The cornea's main function is to refract or bend, light.
