Farsightedness is a refractive mistake that makes close-by objects look fuzzy. It happens when the shape of the eye makes light emphasis behind the retina, as opposed to on it. If you're farsighted, your optometrist can prescribe spectacles or contact lenses to aid you see plainly. Children with severe farsightedness may be at higher risk for other eye issues, like crossed eyes or amblyopia. If other members of your family are farsighted too, you're more likely to be farsighted. Eye medical professionals can look for farsightedness as part of a detailed eye exam.
