Hyperopic (hyperopia)

A person who is far-sighted is said to be Hyperopic. When one is hyperopic, it means that one has a condition called Hyperopia, which is a defect of vision caused by having a short eyeball. A short eyeball results in images focusing behind the eye. Thus, an object that is blurry will become clearer when moved farther so that the image focuses right at the eye.
