Dr. Richard Bensinger

Hyperopia: If the eye from front to back is too short, so that the lens and cornea cannot focus the light inside the eye (too weak), the correction for this is to supply a magnifying lens in the eyeglasses. The lens of a farsighted person behaves like a magnifying glass. Most hyperopia is in young people and they grow out of much of it. It also reappears in people past 40 as the natural lens loses focus.
