Hyperopia (Farsightedness)

Hyperopia is a vision condition in which distant objects can be seen clearly, but close ones do not come into proper focus.

Hyperopia occurs if your eyeball is too short or the cornea has too little curvature. In these cases, your eye can’t correctly focus the light that enters it.

Common signs of hyperopia include decreased vision, fatigue, and/or headaches after close work. With smaller amounts of hyperopia you may be able to manage to get a clear image by using your eye muscles, but again that may cause eye strain.

The treatment of hyperopia is eyeglasses, contact lenses, or Lasik surgery around the age of 18.

For children with hyperopia, the spectacles no. may decrease as they grow older and the length of the eye increases.
