The eyeball is shorter than normal or too small, which
influences on the cornea and the lens having insufficient
focusing power, so light rays will be focused at a point
behind the retina, rather than directly on it.
People with hyperopia may see distant objects very well,
but have difficulty in seeing objects that are up close,
Farsightedness can be corrected with glasses or contact
lenses to change the way light rays bend into the eyes.
You may need to wear glasses or contact lens all the
time, or only when reading or doing close-up work. Moreover,
refractive surgery such as LASIK, LASEK, or EPILASIK
is another alternative for correcting hyperopia.
