Dear student, Hypermetropia (long-sightedness or far-sightedness): Hypermetropia is an eye defect because of which a person cannot see nearby objects clearly but can see faraway objects normally. By using spectacles with convex lenses, hypermetropia can be corrected, as a convex lens increases the converging power of the eye lens and therefore forms the images of nearby objects on the retina of the hypermetropic eye.
