Hyperopia (Far Sightedness)

To see clearly, an image should focus directly on the retina  (the back of the eye). Hyperopia is when an image focuses behind the retina, causing the vision to be blurry when looking at objects that are too close. Distant objects can also seem blurry with a higher prescription. Other common symptoms include headaches, and reading difficulties in children. This is corrected by glasses or contacts with a plus (+) prescription.
