Hyperopia, or farsightedness, is a common vision problem, affecting about a fourth of the population.
This vision problem occurs when light rays entering the eye focus behind the retina, rather than directly on it. The eyeball of a farsighted person is shorter than normal.
People with hyperopia can see distant objects very well, but have difficulty focusing on objects that are up close.
In most cases, long-sightedness can be easily corrected; however, if left untreated, it could cause more serious complications that will affect your child’s vision permanently.
Farsightedness can be corrected with glasses or contact lenses to change the way light rays bend into the eyes.
If your glasses or contact lens prescription begins with plus numbers, like +2.50, you are farsighted.
