Long-sightedness

Long-sightedness

Long-sightedness is a condition characterized by inadequate vision of near objects and can be diagnosed by an optometrist. Classified as a refractive error, the patient may not be able to see what they are reading and their eyes may get tired easily. Causes of long-sightedness are abnormal shape and size of the eyeballs, an abnormal shape of the corneas and a thin lens. Age, genetics, medical conditions such as diabetes and trauma to the eye could all aggravate the condition. Laser eye surgery can be performed to correct the eye sight.
