What is Hypermetropia?
Hypermetropia, also known as farsightedness, is a dimensional eye disorder in which the distance from the lens system to the focal plane on the retina is too small. Young people with active accommodation can compensate by employing the same action normally sighted people use when reading. But as accommodation weakens with age, the hypermetropia becomes manifest and glasses are needed.
