In the previous segment, we learnt about Myopia and how to correct it. In this segment, we will learn about other common eye defects like Hyperopia, Astigmatism, and Presbyopia.
What is Hyperopia?
- Hyperopia, also known as farsightedness, is exactly the opposite of Myopia. In this case, the distant objects are clear while nearby objects appear blurry.
- In this condition, the light is focused behind the retina rather than on the retina. This defect results due to the eyeball being smaller than usual. So the distance between the lens and retina is smaller than it should be in a normal eye.
- Hyperopia can be corrected using a convex lens which helps in focussing the light at the correct place.
