Hypermetropia means the light beams entering the eye focusing on the backside of the retina. A short antero-posterior axis of the eye or flatness of the corneal or crystalline lens curvature can cause hypermetropia. Most seen symptoms are blurry sight at near distances like books and getting eye strain or pain around the eyes when reading.
School aged children usually are hypermetropic, with the growing up hypermetropia ends. These children see clearly at all distances. Hypermetropia occasionally can be with squint. Headache, avoiding to do homeworks or reading can be signs of hypermetropia. Hypermetropia usually is hereditary.
Hypermetropia can be corrected with convex lensed eyeglasses, contact lenses and refractive surgeries as LASIK, LASEK and PRK.
