Hypermetropia is the medical term for farsightedness. The main complaint is vague and look far to see close objects more blurry. On this type of refractive disorders, length of the eyeball is usually shorter than it should. Due to the short axis of the eyeball, the eye lens is no longer able to focus light from distant objects much less a close precisely on the retina, with a maximum berakomondasi lens though. Hypermetropia can normally be found in the eyes of children, as a result of his eyes that had not grown properly.
Hypermetropia is usually continues to improve and even disappear, in line with the increasing length of the eyeball following the growth axis of the body. Group of teenagers who suffer from hypermetropia usually still able to see clearly whether the object is located far away or close, because they still have the lens focusing power strong enough to overcome the disorder suffered. But the effort is not always successful, and if successful will not last long, because the accommodation is very tiring constantly eye. Disorders that often accompany the hypermetropia is crossed eyes, this situation arises as a result of continuous effort of accommodation in children. The muscles in the eye that produces accommodation, have the same innervation of the muscles that are used to drive the eyeball. Thus, symptoms such as headaches or symptoms do not like reading in children, may be a sign of hypermetropia is usually inherited.
