Farsightedness (Hyperopia)

Farsightedness (hyperopia) is a common vision condition in which you can see distant objects clearly, but objects nearby may be blurry.

The degree of your farsightedness determines your focusing ability. People with severe farsightedness may see near objects less clearly than distant objects, while those with mild farsightedness may be able to clearly see objects that are closer.

Farsightedness usually is present at birth and tends to run in families. You can easily correct this condition with eyeglasses or contact lenses.

Normal Vision

Farsightedness (Hyperopic Vision)

The eye is shorter, causing the focus point to occur behind the retina, and the nearby object to appear blurry.
