A myopic or hypermetropic person can also possess the normal ability of accommodationof the eye-lens. Myopia occurs when the eye-ballsget elongated from front to back.Hypermetropia occurs when the eye-ballsget shortened. When the eye-lens loses itsability of accommodation, the defect is called presbyopia.
