Normally, light is focussed by the cornea and lens to form a sharp image on the retina.
Sometimes the eyeball is too long for the shape of the cornea ...
... so the light comes to a focus before it reaches the retina.
As a result, objects in the distance are blurred ...
... although close objects are usually clear.
Short-sightedness can be corrected by spectacles or contact lenses.
These lenses correct the vision so that distant objects are clear once again.
