    Farsightedness is caused by shorter axial length, when the adjusting state does not use the parallel light through the eyes of inflection emperor focus falling on the retina, a clear image can't be formed on the retina. So, farsightedness often requires the use of a regulator to strengthen the refractive power of the eye, to make light entering the eye can be collected and become a clear image on the retina. For the treatment of farsightedness, we need to wear suitable convex lens correction to improve vision and relieve fatigue symptoms. As mild farsightedness, generally speaking, we often do not need glasses, but if someone has the symptoms of fatigue or esotropia, we should wear corrective glasses as soon as possible. To the high degree of pre-school children hyperopic patients, we should go to the optometrist at early time for a timely manner to reduce the degree of the lens, to meet the growing needs of the vision.

    Farsightedness is also known as hyperopia, longsightedness or hypermetropia. It is a vision disorder which usually is because of the shortage of the eyeball or the non-round lens. When people suffer the farsightedness, he or she can be hard to focus on near objects and the image will look blurred. Many reasons will lead to farsightedness such as age (the most common reason), injuries, genetics, and infections. People with farsightedness can choose eye surgery or prescription eyeglasses for correction. Considering the risk of surgery, most of people will choose prescription glasses.

    The farsightedness is also known as hyperopia, which causes the people can hardly focus on nearby objects, or unable to focus on objects at any distance. The eye has to increase optical power to keep the image to focus on the retina if an object moves in front of the eye. Otherwise, there is no sufficient power, it could be hyperopia.
