Hyperopia otherwise known as Hypermetropia or long-sightedness is an eye condition which primarily affects adults over 40 but can affect people of all ages, including children. Hyperopia means that the patient struggles to focus on close up objects but may be better able to see objects in the distance; however some patients are unable to focus on objects at any distance.
