Vision deficiency

Short-sightedness

Short-sightedness (myopia) is when objects in the distance appear blurred.

Vision deficiency

Far-sightedness

With farsightedness (hyperopia), objects that are close by cannot be seen sharply.

Vision deficiency

Presbyopia

With increasing age, the elasticity of the lens decreases and therefore also the accommodation capacity.
