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.
Farsightedness is caused by the eyeball being too short, or the cornea having too little curvature.
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.
Acute glaucoma is usually due to the shape of the eyeball and is most common in farsighted people.
