    Surely if shortsightedness is caused from staring at the TV screen too long or some other un-natural occurance then it can be reversed without surgery over time?

    If not can someone explain how you can become shortsighted but not longsighted without surgical interference
    Most of it's genetic or comes with age as far as I know. Eyes can be strengthened with exercises to some extent as with all muscles but only to a point- where they're weak is probably what you're talking about anyway. Is this what you meant?
