What does it mean to be nearsighted or farsighted?

A Answers (1)

  • Significantly nearsighted people of any age can read without glasses, but vision of distant objects is blurred without glasses. Farsighted people first need glasses to read and then, as they age, also need glasses for clear distance vision.
