What is Hyperopia
Your vision is impacted by the common eye disorder known as hyperopia. Hyperopia, which is more commonly prevalent in adults, impairs close-up vision and forces most individuals to squint in order to see effectively. For people with hyperopia, activities like reading, writing, and computer use can result in eye strain and headaches.
Causes of Hyperopia
Farsightedness results from either the cornea having too little curvature or the eye not properly bending light, causing it to focus in front of the back of the eye. The growth and development of the eye are frequently influenced by hereditary factors.
Symptoms of Hyperopia
The inability to concentrate and maintain a clear focus on nearby objects, eye strain, weariness and/or headaches after close work, itchy or burning eyes, and irritation or anxiousness after prolonged concentration are all common symptoms of hyperopia.
Diagnosis of Hyperopia
Common vision tests, such as those conducted in schools, frequently miss hyperopia. This is because although they are frequently ineffectively evaluated at close range, these people have minimal trouble recognizing the letters on a distance eye chart. However, the essential tests to identify hyperopia will be part of a thorough eye exam.
Treatment for Hyperopia
A doctor of optometry can suggest treatments if necessary. Your eyes might be able to compensate for minor cases of farsightedness without the use of corrective lenses. In other circumstances, an optometrist may recommend eyeglasses or contact lenses that change how light enters the eyes and enable you to view up close objects clearly.
