Hyperopia, or farsighted vision, refers to the condition in which the shape of the eye causes light to focus beyond the retina, resulting in blurred vision at close distances. The condition is easily diagnosed with an eye exam and just as easy to treat. Hyperopia treatment can include wearing prescription glasses or contact lenses or corrective eye surgery.
