|In the myopic eye accommodated for distance the focal point lies in the interior of the eye in front of the retina, with the result that visual acuity is reduced for distance vision.|
To permit sharp distance vision again, the excessive refractive power must be corrected by a minus lens in such a way that the focal point of the lens/eye system once again lies on the retina. In myopia the far point MR lies at a finite distance in front of the eye.
