No: The prescription need to correct your vision is a function of the physical characteristics of your eye including it's length and the curvature of the cornea.

Farsightedness: Some youngsters outgrow farsightedness. Glasses and contact lenses work well. LASIK or PRK can help with lower amounts of farsightedness. Also, the lens of the eye can be removed and replaced with a lens implant that contains the power of the glasses. The procedure is very much like a cataract surgery. These surgical options are probably not covered by your insurance. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not possible: Basing my answer on medical studies and research, it is not possible to cure farsightedness with eye exercises. The problem is that the optical system of the eye is focusing the image behind the retina. Glasses or contacts correct this by refocusing the light. Eye exercises work on the eye muscles around the eye but not on the focusing of light on the retina. ...Read more

It is treatable with corrective. ...Read more
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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can't see near: Farsighted eyes are focused far off into the distance. They tend to be small eyes that cannot bring near images into focus on the film layer of the eye (retina). The images would essentially form behind the eye, and one would have to walk backwards to bring the retina to the image. Glasses correct farsightedness by providing extra focus to "bring" the image forward onto the retina. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Convex lens: The farsighted (hyperopic) eye is too short. The rays of light entering the eye are not bent sharply enough to converge and form an image on the retina; rather, the image is formed behind the retina. A convex lens (shaped like a magnifying glass) adds some light-bending so the rays are bent more sharply, and the image is formed on the retina. A picture of this is much clearer. ...Read more
