DEFINICIÓN

In hyperopia, the eyeball is “shorter” than normal, so the light that comes in focuses behind the retina, creating a “blurred” image for objects that are near. In youth, one can make up for this situation with accommodation, thus achieving good vision. If hyperopia is more severe, strabismus can occur.
