Long sightedness, or hyperopia, is an eye condition in which causes close objects to appear blurry, but distant objects usually come into proper focus and are seen clearly. It occurs if your eyeball is too short or the curvature of the cornea or crystalline lens is too flat, producing an eye which is weaker in focusing power than normal so that the focal point is behind the retina. A plus lens is therefore prescribed to bring the focus forward onto the retina. Common symptoms of longsightedness include difficulty focusing at near, eye strain, and headaches, especially after close work.
