Long-sighted eyes may see well in the long-distance but may have difficulty seeing objects up close.

In this condition, when the eye is at rest, light is focused behind the retina because the optical components of the eye are not strong enough. Focusing the eye's natural lens may bring distant and near objects into clear view.

If the eyes are not strong enough to focus on objects, then vision will appear blurred. This blur would be more common with closer objects.

Symptoms may also include

  • Sore eyes
  • Eye strain
  • Headaches
  • Long-sighted eyes may fatigue with near tasks, such as reading, computer work, smartphone and tablet use.
