Hyperopia

What is hyperopia?

Hyperopia, otherwise known as long-sightedness or far-sightedness, is a common eye condition that causes objects to appear blurred. The majority of patients have problems focusing on close objects, but some will have problems with distance and close objects at the same time.

In perfect vision light rays from an object will be focused on the retina, but in hyperopia light rays reach the retina before converging into a focused image due to the eye being too short or the cornea being less curved than usual making the eye too weak to focus the light.
