    Explanation
    Farsightedness, also known as hyperopia, is a common vision condition where distant objects can be seen clearly, but close-up objects appear blurry. This occurs when the eyeball is shorter than normal or the cornea is too flat, causing light to focus behind the retina instead of directly on it. People with hyperopia may experience eyestrain, headaches, and difficulty focusing on near objects. Corrective measures such as glasses, contact lenses, or refractive surgery can help improve vision for individuals with hyperopia.
