Do you have a clear vision when focus on distant object, but blurred image when you try to look at something nearby? If your answer is "YES!", you probably have hyperopia.

Hyperopia is a medical to describe a sight defection by your eye professionals, while we usually refer it as "farsightedness" in common. Compared to an ordinary eye, the hyperopia's eyeball appears shorter and the cornea has lesser curvature, so the light entering your eyes could not focus properly on the retina.

Common signs of hyperopia include difficulty in concentrating and maintaining a clear focus on near objects, eye strain, fatigue and/or headaches after close work, aching or burning eyes, irritability or nervousness after sustained concentration.

Both hyperopia and presbyopia share some characteristic, but they are totally different. Presbyopia is mostly develop among the 40s and above because it is part of the natural aging process. However, hyperopia is due to the shape defection in the eyeball and cornea.

Like other vision conditions, hyperopia could be treated by eyeglasses, contact lenses and laser surgery. Consult and follow the instruction prescribed by the optometrist is essential in order to attain clear vision.
