People with hyperopia are able to see objects clearly at far distances, but struggle to see objects close up.
Eyeglasses are the easiest and the safest way to treat hyperopia.
People with hyperopia find it hard to focus on objects close up. They might notice they're constantly squinting, or that their eyes get tired (eye fatigue) when they're reading or using the computer. Far-sighted people may also suffer from headaches caused by straining their eyes to improve their focus.
