Farsightedness or hyperopia means objects are seen clearly far away but are blurry close up.

You may be farsighted if you you:

  • Have difficulty concentrating and maintaining  a clear focus on near objects
  • Suffer from eye strain, headaches, burning aching eyes
  • Have poor reading ability
  • Need to hold reading material away from your eyes.

Farsighted patients may need visual correction just for reading, or all the time depending upon the degree of their condition.  A thorough vision examination will determine which treatment is best for you.
