Hyperopia is a common vision condition in which you can see distant objects clearly, but objects nearby may be blurry.
The degree of your farsightedness influences your focusing ability. People with severe farsightedness may struggle to see objects at distance and near, while those with mild farsightedness may be able to clearly see objects in the distance but struggle with anything closer.
Farsightedness can be present from birth and tends to run in families.
Symptoms may include:
Anatomy of the eye
Your eye has two parts that focus images:
In a normally shaped eye, each of these focusing elements has a perfectly smooth curvature. A cornea and lens with such curvature bend (refract) all incoming light to make a sharply focused image directly on the retina, at the back of your eye.
A refractive error
If your cornea or lens isn't evenly and smoothly curved, light rays aren't refracted properly, and you have a refractive error.
Farsightedness occurs when your eyeball is shorter than normal or your cornea is curved too little. Instead of being focused precisely on your retina, light is focused behind your retina
Hyperopia can be associated with several problems, such as:
If your degree of farsightedness is pronounced enough that you can't perform a task as well as you wish, or if your quality of vision detracts from your enjoyment of activities, you should organise an eye examination.

I would like to say how much I appreciated the care and attention I received during the course of my two cataract operations. Many thanks to you and your team for making it a really wonderful experience. I am enjoying looking at the world through my new eyes!
