Vision Conditions

Hyperopia

HyperopiaFarsightedness, or hyperopia, is a vision condition in which distant objects are usually seen clearly, but close ones do not come into proper focus. Farsightedness occurs if your eyeball is too short or the cornea has too little curvature, so light entering your eye is not focused correctly on the retina. Common signs of farsightedness may include difficulty in concentrating and maintaining a clear focus on near objects, eye strain, fatigue and/or headaches after close work, aching or burning eyes, irritability or nervousness after sustained concentration. In mild cases of farsightedness, your eyes may be able to compensate without corrective lenses. In more severe cases, let us prescribe eyeglasses or contact lenses which can correct farsightedness by altering the way the light enters your eyes.
