    What Is Farsightedness?

    Farsightedness, or hyperopia, is caused when the curvature of the cornea is too flat, or the eyeball is too short, forcing light to focus behind the retina. With farsightedness, the eye’s weak refractive power causes far objects to be seen more clearly and near objects to appear blurred. The eyes may have to strain to maintain things in focus. The first appearance of hyperopia is strongly age-dependent; younger patients have much less difficulty with hyperopia.


    You can correct your farsightedness by the following options:

    • Glasses
    • Contacts
    • LASIK
    • Lens Implants
