Are you able to see distant objects well but having trouble focusing on nearby objects? You could be suffering from Hyperopia (Long-sightedness or Far-sightedness).
What is Hyperopia (Long-sightedness or Far-sightedness)?
Hyperopia (Long-sightedness or Far-sightedness) is a condition in which a person is able to see objects far away but where near vision (reading) is poor. Like other refractive errors, hyperopia occurs when the eye is unable to focus light rays accurately on the seeing part of the eye, the retina.

What causes Hyperopia (Long-sightedness or Far-sightedness)?
Usually, this is caused by the eyeball being too short, causing light rays to focus behind the retina. Many very young children are hyperopic because they have small eyeball, but their hyperopia lesses as their eyeball grows larger with time. In a population, hyperopia in the adult is increasingly rare.
