When you cant see in the distance, is it near or short sighted??
funny story, i went to an opticians because i know my vision wasn't what it used to be, they told me it was absolutely perfect and they couldn't do anything for me (they ,must have thought i was nuts!) but then i went to the4 doc after my eyesight got even worse and he told me i was "half blind" (slight exaggeration on his part!), so he sent a letter to the eye and ear hospital and im still waiting on an appointment (takes about a frikin month!)

anyway, back to the original question, is it near or short sighted?

If you can't see far you're nearsighted (meaning you can see near better) & if you can't see near you're farsighted (meaning you can see far better) . It's total opposite so that's why it's so confusing.

"nearsightedness" and "shortsightedness" are the same thing.

Americans prefer the term "nearsighted", Brits prefer the term "shortsighted".

they are synonyms.

Far sighted and near-sighted. You can see near when you are just near-sighted, you can't see near if you are far-sighted.

I find it easier to remember in the other way:
If you are near sighted, you can see what is near you.
If you are far sighted, you can see what is far away.

So if you can't see in the distance, you are near sighted.

short (near) sighted

You're near sighted. If you're far sighted you can see far, but not near.

1st of all, it's near & far sighted, & if things far away are blurry, it's nearsightedness. i have it too

Itis a good guesss that you are near-sighted or myopic. It is not conclusive, however.
Some people cannot see clearly at a distance because they are highly farsighted or because they have low vision or for other reasons.
How could an oprician determine that you your vision was absolutely perfect without examining you?
