Hyperopia occurs when the eye is shorter than normal or the cornea (clear front window of the eye) is too flat. The result is that close objects focus behind the retina and will appear blurry.
Hyperopia usually means that you see distant objects somewhat clearly but near objects will appear more blurred.
Hyperopia can affect both children and adults and individual patient experience can vary widely.
Young patients may not notice any problems with their vision as their lens is supple enough to refract the light rays to focus on the retina.
With significant hyperopia, vision can be blurry for objects at any distance, near or far.
Some patients even experience double vision.
The signs and symptoms of hyperopia vary from person to person and include:
Difficulty with close tasks like reading
Blurry vision, especially for close objects
Hyperopia can have rare complications such as:
Strabismus, also called crossed eyes, a condition in which the eyes do not properly align with each other when looking at an object
Amblyopia, also called lazy eye, a disorder of sight due to the eye and brain not working well together. It results in decreased vision in an eye that otherwise typically appears normal.
