A condition in which the visual images come into a focus in front of the retina of the eye resulting in poor distance vision.

Hyperopia (farsightedness)

A condition in which the visual images come into focus behind the retina of the eye and vision is better for distance than for near objects.

Presbyopia

A condition, generally in those over 40, causing diminished power of focusing on near objects and small print, arising from a loss of elasticity of the lens in the eye.

Astigmatism
