Farsightedness, or hyperopia, is another common vision condition. A farsighted individual will be able to clearly see objects in the distance, but objects close to them will appear blurry. Different individuals with this condition will have different abilities to focus. With severe farsightedness, patients might only be able to see objects in the far distance, but those with a more mild form of the condition may be able to see closer objects. Farsightednes usually runs in families and tends to be present from birth. It can be corrected with contact lenses, eyeglasses, or surgery. Farsightedness occurs when the lens or cornea of the eye isn't smoothly and evenly curved, causing incorrect refraction of light. The cornea has a too-small curve or the eyeball itself is shorter than usual.
