Patients with hyperopia, or farsightedness, have no difficulty seeing things that are far away, but experience blurred vision when attempting to focus on objects nearby, such as a book or restaurant menu. They may experience eyestrain, eye fatigue and headaches when straining to focus on objects at close range.

Hyperopia can be caused by a shorter than average eyeball when measured from the cornea to the retina. Light is focused behind the retina instead of directly onto it, causing blurred vision that becomes clearer as an object is moved farther away. Children who suffer from untreated hyperopia may face difficulties in school and may struggle to learn to read. We offer eye screenings for the whole family and have a vast selection of contact lenses and eyeglasses for children and adults.
