Hyperopia (farsightedness) is a condition in which the eye must focus extra at all distances. Normally more focused effort is required when looking at near tasks so a farsighted eye may see better at distance and near. If the person is young, enough they can compensate for the condition and have good far and near vision. An older person would have more difficulty with his near vision. It can be corrected with glasses, contact lenses or surgery.
