Abstract

Hypermetropy is a refractive anomaly in which parallel light beams reaching from the distance are collected in the focus behind the retina without participating in accommodation, unlike the normal eye where the focus is on the retina. The term hypermetropy arrives from the Latin language and in translation means distant. The observed object in the distance in the hypermetropolitan faces is primarily created behind the retina, so that its contours are presented as yellow, vague spots. While in young people, if they do not have a high degree of hyperometry, with the help of accommodation (the ability of the eye to change the lens breaking power) they can correct their refractive anomaly and obtain a clear visual acuity for the focused objects.
