Sometimes people confuse hypermetropia with presbyopia, which also is a difficulty in seeing up close, but has a different cause.
When people develop presbyopia, they find they need to hold books, magazines, newspapers, menus and other reading materials at arm's length in order to focus properly. When they perform near work, such as embroidery or handwriting, they may have headaches or eyestrain, or feel fatigued.
Presbyopia is caused by an age-related process. This is different from farsightedness, which is related to the shape of the eyeball and caused by genetic factors, disease, or trauma. Presbyopia is generally believed to stem from a gradual loss of flexibility in the natural lens inside your eye.
