Hyperopia

What is Hyperopia?

Unlike myopia, patients with this eyesight problem have an eye that is shorter than normal eyes. This means that they cannot see well when reading or when trying to see things that are close, since the image is formed behind the retina. 

Young persons with hyperopia are usually not short-sighted. However, as they get older, they have gradually more problems with short-sightedness. Young children have a discrete hyperopia, which disappears when they are from 6 to 8 years old. 

Mild hyperopia does not produce complications in healthy persons. However, severe hyperopias, in early childhood, are a significant risk factor for the so-called “lazy eye,” and if the individual is over 50 years, an important risk factor for the development of narrow-angle glaucoma.

Hyperopia is, along with myopia and astigmatism, a refractive defect that does not allow adequate vision without the correction of glasses or contact lenses.
