Hyperopia

Hyperopia, or long sightedness, causes a person to see clearer at far distances rather than at near distances.

Extra effort is required to try to clear the focus at all distances, resulting in eye strain and fatigue. This strain can manifest itself as headaches after close work, blurred near vision, tired eyes, difficulty adjusting focus from distance to near and near to distance, avoiding close work and short attention span for near tasks.

In some age groups a prescription for hyperopia often works to relieve the strain, rather than clearing the vision.
