Has squinting to see nearby objects become more than a habit but a necessity? Does working on a computer or reading strain your eyes? These are common symptoms of farsightedness, also known as hyperopia. Those who suffer from it usually rely on corrective lenses—but that doesn’t have to be you. End your reliance on corrective lenses with LASIK for farsightedness. It’s time to see life with a clear vision again.
What Is Farsightedness?
When the length of your eye is too short or has a flat cornea, the light passing through focuses behind the retina. This is the common condition known as farsightedness. In a functional eye, the light passing through would focus directly on the retina.
Farsightedness and presbyopia are often confused and have many of the same symptoms. Presbyopia is a progressive loss of near vision-related to changes in the lens of your eye. Around the age of 40 is when patients start to notice the near vision issues of presbyopia.
Common symptoms of being farsighted include::
- Objects nearby appear blurry
- Squinting to see clearly
- Experiencing eyestrain, burning sensations, and or aching in or around your eyes
- Experiencing eye discomfort and headaches when performing close tasks such as reading, writing, or working on a computer.
