Hyperopia (Farsighted)

Home/Eye Health/Hyperopia (Farsighted)


Hyperopia, commonly known as farsightedness, is the vision condition in which distant objects are usually seen clearly, but close ones do not come into proper focus. Common signs of being farsighted 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.

Mild cases of farsightedness may be able to be compensated without corrective lenses. In other cases eyeglasses or contact lenses will be prescribed.
