is a condition in which near objects appear blurry. The patient
may see far objects well, but the close objects are just a blur. The
lens in the patient's eyes cannot focus near objects to a point correctly.
After much straining, a farsighted person's lens will not hold its
shape to converge the light to a point in the back of the retina.
In farsighted people, the bulge in the middle of their eyes tend to
be rather flatter than normal eyes.

to a point in farsighted eyes.

of refractive error may be a sign of a bigger, more serious disease.

will improve this condition to 20/20 most of the times. They will

laser eye surgery has also lead to almost permanent eye correction.
By this method, corneal tissue is removed from the corners of the
cornea in order to make the bulge more apparent.

a convex lens can re-focus light to a normal point on the retina.
