Hyperopia is also called farsightedness or long-sightedness and is a defect of vision caused by an imperfection in the eye (often when the eye is too short or when the lens cannot become round enough), causing inability to focus on near objects, and in extreme cases causing a sufferer to be unable to focus on objects at any distance.

As an object moves toward the eye, the eye must increase its power to keep the image in focus on the retina. If the power of the cornea and lens is insufficient, as in Hyperopia, the image will appear blurred.
