Farsightedness (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.
Symptoms: Symptoms include: Tension. Fatigue. Blurry vision up close. Squinting to see better. An aching or burning sensation around your eyes. A headache after reading or other tasks that require you to focus on something up close.
Diagnosis: During the exam, doctor will probably want to dilate (widen) your pupils (the black circles in the center of your eyeballs). He or she will put drops in your eyes that will do this. Then, the doctor will use a magnifying lens to look closely at your eyes. You might also need to look through and rate various glass lenses.
Treament: Refractive surgery can also treat farsightedness. Procedures such as Laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK) are more commonly used to treat nearsightedness. Possible complications of this surgery include: over- or under-correcting your vision. seeing a starburst or halo around lights. Infection. dry eyes.
Epidemology: The mean age at stroke onset was 74?6 1?1 years, 72?3 years in men and 76?6 years in women. Among all strokes: 67?3-82?6% were classified ischemic 9?9-19?6% as primary intracerebral hemorrhage 1?6-4?0% as sub-arachnoid hemorrhage, and 1?2-17?7% as undetermined. Data from selected Italian registers on stroke incidence and case-fatality indicate the great burden of the disease on our national healthcare system.
