In brief: It may

Hyperopia may change, namely, getting worse.
Also, when your vision gets older, your hyperopia will change as well.

In brief: Hyperopia v. age

Most infants are somewhat hyperopic and as the eye grows, the amount diminishes and many become myopic.
Those over the late 30's have a certain percentage who acquire hyperopia and may need correction for this as well as near needs termed presbyopia.
