Hyperopia is when you can see the distant object clearly (depending on the prescription) but your near vision may be a little bit blurry. This can be corrected with glasses, contacts or surgery.
When children are first examined for their farsightedness, They may need an extra eye drop that will allow the doctor to produce a more accurate prescription. This is because some children's eyes are constantly working hard to accommodate for their prescriptions. Therefore, the drop known as cyclopentolate can be a very important part of the examination to let us know their exact prescription.
