  • Farsightedness

    Farsightedness (hyperopia) is a common vision condition in which you can see distant objects clearly, but objects nearby may be blurry. The degree of farsightedness influences focusing ability. People with severe farsightedness may see clearly only objects a great distance away, while those with mild farsightedness may be able to clearly see objects that are closer. Farsightedness usually is present at birth and tends to run in families. You can easily correct this condition with eyeglasses or contact lenses. Another treatment option is surgery

    Farsightedness

    Farsightedness (hyperopia) is a common vision condition in which you can see distant objects clearly, but objects nearby may be blurry. The degree of farsightedness influences focusing ability. People with severe farsightedness may see clearly only objects a great distance away, while those with mild farsightedness may be able to clearly see objects that are closer. Farsightedness usually is present at birth and tends to run in families. You can easily correct this condition with eyeglasses or contact lenses. Another treatment option is surgery.

    Symptoms

    • Nearby objects may appear blurry
    • You need to squint to see clearly
    • You have eyestrain, including burning eyes, and aching in or around the eyes
    • You experience general eye discomfort or a headache after a prolonged interval of conducting close tasks, such as reading, writing, computer work or drawing.

    Treatment

    Corrective lenses In young people, treatment isn't always necessary because the crystalline lenses inside the eyes are flexible enough to compensate for the condition. But as you age, the lenses become less flexible and eventually you'll probably need corrective lenses to improve near vision. Wearing corrective lenses treats farsightedness by counteracting the decreased curvature of cornea or the smaller size (length) of eye. Types of corrective lenses include:
    • Eyeglasses. The variety of eyeglasses is wide and includes bifocals, trifocals, progressive lenses and reading lenses.
    • Contact lenses. A wide variety of contact lenses are available — hard, soft, extended wear, disposable, rigid gas permeable and bifocal. Ask eye doctor about the pros and cons of contact lenses and what might be best for you.
