One of my friend is suffering from it and her number of eyes is increasing day by day and has reached to -9.75 she has consulted many doctors and everyone says that she needs to pray God that her number gets stagnant so that they could operate her eyes. They say this is the rarest disease. Do anyone know about it?.

Myopia is the term used to define short sightedness. Light from a distant object forms an image before it reaches the retina. This could be because the eye is too long, or the cornea or crystalline lens is too strong.
A myopic person has clear vision when looking at objects close to them, but distant objects will appear blurred.
New thing for me too, after researching a bit, I came to know that it's an eye disease where light came into eye is not set directly comes on retina but in front of it, because of that long distant objects seems out of focus..
Myopia is a medical term for Nearsightedness. It is a vision condition in which close objects are seen clearly, but objects farther away appear blurred. Nearsightedness occurs if the eyeball is too long or the cornea, the clear front cover of the eye, has too much curvature. As a result, the light entering the eye isn’t focused correctly and distant objects look blurred.
Myopia is short sightedness in which the person cannot see distant objects clearly.Myopia is not the rarest disease. Nowadays it is found to be very common. My advice to your friend is to wear a concave lens of appropriate power so that the number (-9.75) stays stagnant. If at all it doesn't work then go ahead with surgery.There is a surgery for myopia in which they remove lens so that the power comes down. But keep surgery as a last option.
