Eye Care and Vision Correction in Atlanta, GA

"I can see far away better than close up."

Hyperopia, also known as farsightedness, is a refractive problem caused by an eyeball that is too short or a cornea that is too flat. When the eyeball is too short, the reduced length does not give the cornea and lens sufficient space to bring the light rays to a focal point upon the retina. When the cornea is too flat, it does not bend the light rays from near objects sufficiently to bring them in focus upon the retina.

Hyperopia is different from Presbyopia which is the age related loss of your near vision due to the hardening of the natural lens which begins to develop around the age of 40.
