Degree Of Farsightedness

Evaluating Risk Factors: Farsightedness

Evaluating your likely current (and near future) state of health means taking into account the risk factors — such as degree of farsightedness — that affect you.   Our medical diagnosis tool, The Analyst™, identifies major risk factors by asking the right questions.

If you indicate being astigmatic and near/farsighted or being nearsighted or farsighted, The Analyst™ will ask further questions including this one:
Are you FARSIGHTED in either eye? If one eye is more farsighted than the other, only mention that eye. If one eye is nearsighted, mention that eye in the previous question. You can estimate 'mild' to 'extreme' if you do not know the exact diopters.
Possible responses:
→ No / I have astigmatism only / don't know
→ Mild farsightedness (less than +2.00 diopters)
→ Moderate farsightedness (+2.00 to +3.75 diopters)
→ Severe farsightedness (+4.00 to +6.00 diopters)
→ Extreme farsightedness (more than +6.00 diopters)

The Diagnostic Process

Based on your response to this question, which may indicate being mildly farsighted, being moderately farsighted, being severely farsighted or being extremely farsighted, The Analyst™ will use differential diagnosis to consider possibilities such as Glaucoma.  Acute glaucoma is usually due to the shape of the eyeball and is most common in farsighted people.
