Hyperopia is an eye condition that is often better known as long sightedness.
If you have difficulty focusing on things that are close by, but find it easy to see things that are far away, there’s a chance you could be long sighted.
Long sightedness is caused when the eyeball is too short or when the lens is not round enough. This makes it difficult for the eye to focus on near objects.

We’ve been inundated with people asking us – “What does 20/20 vision actually mean?”
So we put the question to Optical Express’ Clinical Services Director Stephen Hannan, who explains:
“By conducting research, optometrists have basically been able to gauge the standard of vision that a person should be able to see when standing 20 feet away from an eye chart. If you have 20/20 vision, it means that when you stand 20 feet away from the chart you can see exactly the same as someone with standard vision can see.”
