Hyperopia (Farsightedness)

Hyperopia (Farsightedness) refers to a condition in which you can clearly see objects at a distance, but cannot clearly see objects close to you. Hyperopia is the result of a Refractive Problem and is the inability of the eye to focus on the retina. If you have Hyperopia, glasses and contacts add focusing power, causing light rays to bend more as they enter the eye. This process moves the focal point back to the retina, allowing for clear vision.

If you find that you are able to see objects clearly at a distance, but have difficulty seeing objects clearly close up, please consult an Ophthalmologist.
