What is Long Sightedness?

Long-sighted people or Hyperopic people are able to see objects clearly at far distance, but struggle to see objects close up. Glasses or contact lenses can help.

Signs of Hyperopia
You will find it hard to focus on objects close up. You might notice that you’re constantly squinting, or that your eyes get tired (eye fatigue) when you are reading or using the computer. And you may suffer from headaches caused by your eyes straining to focus.

Managing Long Sightedness
For Hyperopes, nearby objects are blurred, which can make reading, writing and viewing digital screens difficult. The condition can be treated with specially shaped prescription glasses or contact lenses. To correct the way light focusses on the retina, the lenses are thinner at the edge than in the centre.
