Farsightedness, known as hyperopia, makes it difficult to see objects that are close. It is caused when the light entering the eye is focused behind the retina instead of on it. This can be a result of the eyeball being too short. Many times, farsightedness occurs at birth. Some children outgrow the condition without experiencing many symptoms.
