Article Excerpts about Hyperopia

Hyperopia, or farsightedness, is the opposite of myopia. Distant objects are clear, and close-up objects appear blurry. With hyperopia, images focus on a point beyond the retina. Hyperopia results from an eye that is too short. (Source: excerpt from Facts About the Cornea and Corneal Disease: NEI)

Definitions of Hyperopia:

A refractive error in which rays of light entering the eye parallel to the optic axis are brought to a focus behind the retina, as a result of the eyeball being too short from front to back. It is also called farsightedness because the near point is more distant than it is in emmetropia with an equal amplitude of accommodation. (Dorland, 27th ed) - (Source - Diseases Database)

Abnormal condition in which vision for distant objects is better than for near objects - (Source - WordNet 2.1)
