. Myopia occurs due to


A: Increase in the focal length of eye lens

B: Decrease in the distance between retina and lens

C: Decrease in the focal length of the eye lens

D: Increase in the distance between retina and lens

 

Best Answer

Explanation:

  • The term "myopia" is used to describe nearsightedness. 
  • Before reaching the retina, light from a distant object produces a picture.
  • This is due to the eyeball being too big or the cornea or crystalline lens being overly strong. 
  • The focal length of the eye lens decreases as a result, but the distance between the retina and the lens remains constant.

Final answer:

Hence, option C is correct, i.e., Decrease in the focal length of the eye lens.
