What are the Causes?
If the eye is too short for the refractive power of the cornea and lens, the image produced will be focused beyond the retina. Consequently, the person will be able to see distances clearly, but close up images will be blurred. Light rays bend less than they should, so the focused image lies behind the retina.
What is the Diagnosis?
The optician’s prescriptions will show a plus sign before the number called ‘Sphere’ (eg +2.00D). The larger the number, the more long-sighted the eye and the further behind the retina the image will fall.
