Those who experience headaches, eye strain or eye fatigue, particularly when attempting to focus on close-up objects, may be suffering from a condition known as hyperopia, or farsightedness. Hyperopia occurs when the pupil is unable to bend or redirect light that enters it as intended. Hyperopia sufferers are generally able to see far away objects with minimal effort, but close-up objects often appear less clear or indistinct.
Your eye doctor can usually diagnose cases of hyperopia during a thorough eye exam. If it is determined that you do, in fact, have the condition, he or she may recommend traditional glasses, contact lenses or Lasik eye surgery as available treatment options.
