Hyperopia Causes

If the cornea or lens isn't evenly and smoothly curved, light rays aren't refracted properly, and there is a refractive error. Farsightedness is one kind of refractive error. It occurs when the cornea is curved too little or the eye is shorter than normal. Instead of being focused precisely on the retina, light is focused behind the retina, resulting in a blurry appearance for close-up objects.

Hyperopia Definition

Farsightedness (also known as hyperopia) is a common vision condition in which one can see objects in the distance clearly, but objects nearby may be blurry.

Hyperopia Diagnosis

Visual acuity is affected depending on the amount of hyperopia, as well as the patient's age, visual demands, and accommodative ability.

Hyperopia Symptoms and Signs

People with hyperopia can experience blurred vision, accommodative dysfunction, asthenopia, binocular dysfunction, amblyopia, and strabismus. The person may also experience general eye discomfort or a headache after a prolonged interval of doing close tasks, such as reading, writing, or drawing.

Hyperopia Treatment

Various eye care professionals, such as ophthalmologists, optometrists, orthoptists, and opticians, are involved in the treatment and management of hyperopia. At the end of an eye examination, an eye doctor may provide the patient with an eyeglass prescription for corrective lenses.
