Answer :

Myopia (nearsightedness) is the defect of vision wherein a person is unable to see the distant objects clearly as the light is unable to focus on the retina and thus distant objects appear to be blurred. The problem of nearsightedness is that the light is focused in front of the retina

Myopia is corrected by wearing glasses or contact lenses. A concave lens(diverging lens) with a minus power is used in the glass, which moves the image back to retina and thus clears the image. The diverging lens will diverge the light before it reaches the retina. The light will then be converged by cornea and lens thus producing an image on the retina.
