Hyperopia Definition

Hyperopia (long sightedness) is where the eye is shorter than normal or the cornea (at the front of the eye) is too flat, meaning that light rays focus behind the retina. Light rays from close objects such as pages of a book cannot be focused on clearly. Someone with hyperopic eyes may find their vision is blurred when looking at objects near to them, but vision sometimes be clearer when looking at far away objects.


A degree of long-sightedness is common in many people, although it only presents a problem when our ability to see is affected or where headaches and eye strain are common.
