Hyperopia (or farsightedness)
or farsightedness is the opposite of myopia wherein the image
is focused on a point beyond the retina. The unfocused image
captured by the retina is then sent to the brain and processed
as an unclear picture.
This condition is a result of an eye that is too short or
a cornea that lacks the necessary refractive power to focus
images on the retina. Here all images are blurred, but especially
the near objects.
You are long-sighted when your spectacle prescription shows
a plus sign in front of the number in the ‘sph’
