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.
Some long sighted people find that their symptoms become more pronounced as they age, with some finding that they end up having difficulty focusing on distant objects too.
It’s important to be sure you have the right diagnosis, and even if you end up unable to see things close by, long sightedness should not be confused with myopia or presbyopia.
Treatments for long sightedness
The treatment for your long sightedness can depend on a number of factors, including the severity of the condition. That’s why it’s important to have a consultation with an eye care professional if your condition worsens, or if you are considering a new line of treatment.
