If the rays would theoretically focus behind the retina, farsightedness exists. Neither of these affect the iris or pupil. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm myopic (20/80 and 20/100). Could the shape of the eye caus you to see more halos or starburts?
Possibly: With correction, many of those images should be reduced or disappear altogether. There is a phenomena called spherical aberration which has to do with the topograpjhy of your eye which may leed to above described images.
