The correct answer to this question isMyopia. This condition is when close objects appear bright, but objectives that are far away aren't clear. Myopia runs through families and is usually passed on from generation to generation. There are about 3 million cases of myopia per year. It can last for just a couple of years or life.

Though lab tests can be done to confirm the condition, it can generally be self-diagnosed. Other symptoms of myopia include straining of eyes, squinting to help see better, and headaches which come from straining and squinting. Many things can be done to treat myopia, including wearing bifocals, wearing contact lenses, and getting Lasik surgery.

Myopia is called nearsightedness and the distance between the cornea and the retina may be too long.
