The book High Myopia deals with the subject of high-degree myopia. The author Sangmin Shim chose this title because high Myopia is an indication of high-degree myopia, and it can be pronounced as “Hi, myopia”. With this title, he wanted to show that he tried to approach the issue of myopia differently, with personal experience and curiosity.
Statistics show that as of 2009, around 70 million people (about 25% to 30% of the American population) were myopic in the U.S. Moreover, 8.5 million people in the U.S were highly myopic. It can be concluded that there are a lot of people with myopia around us, including a small number of people with high myopia. It is hard to imagine how people with myopia see the world without glasses or contact lenses. Without a certain amount of knowledge about the subject, it is difficult to grasp the idea of how myopia functions. Being an individual with high myopia himself, the author pursues this issue and how it has affected his daily life. Everyone has a certain daily routine. This book aims to show how people with strong visual impairments see their environment.
