An eyeball, which is too short or a cornea with too little curvature, focuses light behind the retina. Distant objects are clear and close object are blurred. Your prescription would show a plus sign in front of the first number if you are farsighted (+3.00 +1.00 x 90).
Many people confuse a condition called presbyopia with hyperopia. They are not the same. Presbyopia occurs when eyes gradually lose the ability to focus on near objects. This occurs during the natural aging process of the lens inside the eye. Most people notice this change around age 40 and begin to use reading glasses and bifocals.
