How to remember myopia and hyperopia
To remember the difference between myopia and hyperopia use the following mnemonics:
Sight short (is great)
but have you noticed that myopia is the shorter of the two words myopia and hyperopia so now we have.
|Sight short||(is great)|
So too then
Sight long (is great)
and again the longer word out of myopia and hyperopia is hyperopia.
So we get:
|Sight long||(is great)|
But if you want to recall the words myopia and hyperopia remember:
My old piano = Myopia
Hyper-active = Overly long excitement = Hyperopia
You can then play with the words my, old piano (opia) and hyper:
My old piano (Myopia) was Hyperactive (Hyperopia).
