What is hypermetropia for sightedness?

Hypermetropia, also known as hyperopia or farsightedness, is a vision condition in which distant objects can be seen more clearly than close objects. It occurs when light entering the eye is focused behind the retina instead of directly on it. People with hypermetropia may have difficulty seeing nearby objects clearly without the use of corrective lenses, such as glasses or contact lenses. This condition can be caused by the eyeball being too short or the cornea having too little curvature. Hypermetropia is the opposite of myopia (nearsightedness), where close objects are seen clearly but distant objects appear blurry.
