Alternative Names: Hyperopia, Longsightedness, Long-sightedness, or Hypermetropia
Farsightedness is a vision condition in which distant objects are seen clearly, but close objects can not be focused on.
Symptoms include difficulty concentrating, difficulty focusing on near objects, eye strain, fatigue and/or headache after close-up work, aching or burning eyes, irritability or nervousness after sustained concentration.
If your vision doesn't require correction and you are under 50, an eye exam (including screening for glaucoma and visual acuity) should be performed every three to five years.
