Hyperopia - Long Sightedness

Long sighted diagram from Optique, opticians in Battersea, LondonIf you are long-sighted - Hyperopia, your eyes are too short and the light that comes into your eyes is focused behind the retina rather than on it. This means that eyes have to work hard to re-focus, particularly on things that are close up.

This can give you discomfort, headaches or problems with near vision. You may need to wear glasses all the time or just for close work, such as reading, writing or computer use. In older people, as re-focusing becomes more difficult, distance vision may also become blurred.
