Lightbulb Myopia

why not a virtual image is formed when we use a concave lens to correct myopia?

A virtual image is never formed.

A virtual image is what the object would look like if we took distorted view of the object via the lens or mirror at face value.

This is different from an actual image that might be projected on a wall.
