Nearsighted vs Farsighted – What Does it Mean to Be Nearsighted?

Nearsighted vs Farsighted – What Does it Mean to Be Nearsighted?


So nearsighted versus farsighted in this video I’m going to be reviewing what it means to be nearsighted so that you can better understand how our eyes and vision works So let’s take a look Hey everyone, welcome to dr. Eye health I am. Dr. Joseph Allen and here on this channel You’re gonna find education all about the eyes vision and finding the best vision products So if you new here consider subscribing Also at any point throughout the video check out the show notes and links below for further information about everything that we go over otherwise, let’s go right into the video So now to better understand nearsightedness versus farsightedness Let’s go over the basic fundamentals of how the eyes actually work Now when light hits objects all around us that light then bounces off those objects and enters into our eye When it hits our eye It goes through three different refractive Structures that help bend the light and these structures include the tear film the very front surface of the eye you have the cornea which is the window to the eye and then you have the crystalline lens and that’s the focusing lens inside of the eye when light goes through these structures Those structures actually bend the light and help focus it to the back of the eye and hopefully that light gets focused onto the human retina that retina is basically like the satellite dish that picks up all that light information and then sends it to the visual processing centers of the Brain, and that’s what gives you your eyesight now whether you have nearsightedness farsightedness or astigmatism we refer to that as refractive error and Refractive error means that the strength powers of the eye are either too strong They’re too weak or that the retina itself is either too far back in Reference to where that light is focusing or it’s too far forward and the end result is blurred vision however In most cases we can correct for that with glasses, contact lenses or corrective eye surgery to get that light to focus onto the retina correctly giving clearer vision. Now if somebody is nearsighted in the medical world We call that person having myopia or being myopic and that means that when they see things in the distance things are not in focus Things are too blurry However, when they’re looking up close at something like their phone then things are nice in focus They’re sharp. And again that person is nearsighted Now this happens because when an eye is fully relaxed looking in the distance The light isn’t focused cleanly onto the retina and in fact, the light is focused too strongly It converges in front of the retinal surface or it could be that the eyeball itself Is actually stretched out and is longer meaning that retina is pushed further behind where that light is focusing Actually when we fix or prescribe glasses or contact lenses to correct for nearsightedness We actually prescribe minus lenses these lenses are actually made to weaken the power of the eye and push that focusing light to the retina to help you see that is why when you look at a prescription for glasses for someone with nearsightedness you’ll actually see a little Minus symbol in front of those numbers now the reason for somebody who is nearsighted to be able to see up close Without any form of correction on has to do with some physical properties of light that comes off of near objects the light that comes off of a near object we call Divergent light and that means that the light is actually spreading outward from that near object Now the reason if somebody can see you’ll see up close With that divergent light is because it’s balanced out by the focusing powers of the eye and that makes the light land perfectly Onto the retina even without glasses and again, that’s why they can see clearly up close So that’s what it means to be nearsighted. Did you get all that now? Let’s compare that to someone with just the opposite. They are farsighted or in the medical world. We call that having hyperopia, or hypermetropia now, I explaining hyperopia or farsightedness is a little bit trickier than nearsightedness and that’s because of The involvement of the crystalline lens. Now the crystalline lens together is one of the focusing powers of the eye but the crystalline lens is under the influence of a muscle inside the eye called the ciliary body and when this muscle Flexes the lens inside the eye can change shape and therefore focus the light inside of the eye Hopefully to the retina on its own It’s actually one of the most amazing parts of the human eye And that’s the ability to focus light on its own just like a camera lens that done autofocus now an eye care We like to assume that the refractive powers of the crystalline lens are fully relaxed However, that’s not really true. Almost always people are using their eye muscles just a little bit In fact, it’s nearly impossible to fully relax your eye muscles on your own However, in the clinic we can use different medications in the form of eye drops to help relax those muscles completely and we call that a cycloplegic refraction and that gives us a lot more information about how somebody’s actually Utilizing their eye muscles and the exact refractive powers of the eye now for this example Let’s imagine somebody who is farsighted that cannot use their eye muscles at all And they’re looking in the distance in that case the light being focused inside of the eye is being focused to weakly It’s not strong enough and the light is actually focused behind the retina or it could be that the eye itself is too small and the light again is Focused again behind the retina and not giving us a clear image in that case somebody’s prescribed plus lenses These are magnifying lenses that actually help move that light in front Toward the retina giving them clear vision now in many cases somebody who is farsighted may not need glasses at all or for maybe not at least most of the time and that is because that focusing power of the eye if they are able to utilize their eye muscles and focus the crystalline lens inside the eye then it basically Acts like a magnifying lens. That is fluid and allows us to adjust its power again without needing that farsighted prescription However, the powers of that crystalline lens are limited In fact, that lens grows every year of life and as it gets bigger year after year The lens actually becomes more rigid and difficult to flex meaning that your power or ability to move that focusing plane Forward to the retina, it’s more difficult and more difficult over time, especially When somebody’s looking up close meaning that a lot of people who are farsighted again, they take the glasses off They can see pretty well, but when they’re looking up close it’s more difficult. So they need reading glasses in fact that’s really one of the reasons why a lot of people end up not having glasses until they’re 40s ended up needing glasses to read as they get older and we call that presbyopia Which has literally Latin for old eyes But when somebody is young and has the ability to focus that lens inside of the eye They can overcome quite a bit of farsightedness on their own without glasses the tough part is that some people are using those muscles all day long just to see clearly even that distance and eventually those muscles that whole Dynamic process of using those eye muscles and focusing can break down resulting in kind of a muscle spasm Inside the eye it can end up with eye fatigue or even really – things like headaches and so some people end up still needing to wear glasses for their Farsightedness at all distances just to help relax those eye muscles and prevent that eye fatigue and that’s it That’s basically the difference between nearsightedness and farsightedness However, when somebody is nearsighted or myopic it’s usually not that the focusing powers of the eye are too strong It’s more likely that the eye itself has grown and stretched out through adolescence and this can happen because of either genetic influences environmental factors But that I actually does tend to stretch out and that’s concerning for me as an eye care professional because when the eye starts to stretch out the higher amounts of nearsightedness are associated with different eye diseases that can potentially lead to vision loss and this can include cataracts glaucoma a certain condition called myopic maculopathy you can lead the eye floaters retinal tears and Detachments and even in some extreme cases the retina can actually stretch out so much that it begins to crack open And little blood vessels can grow inside the eye and those new blood vessels can destroy the retina completely So yeah, having excessive amounts of nearsightedness can put the eye at higher risk certain eye diseases It’s a major concern in fact in eye care There’s a whole growing kind of sub specialty called myopia control and that’s utilizing different strategies Different types of lenses to help influence the eyes us to slow down and stop it from progressing and growing longer and The entire point of that is to get slowed down and prevent these different diseases from occurring and becoming more prevalent Actually just recently did an interview with one of my doctor friends here in Minnesota. Dr. Roman Gerber of Wink Family Eye Care who’s very passionate about myopia control if you’d like to check out that video I have hooked up a link to that in the description below as well as in the YouTube card up above All right eye health question of the day.

    ❓ Eye Health QOTD 🔴 Are you nearsighted? Are you farsighted? Do you wear glasses, contact lenses or have you had corrective eye surgery?

  2. Kristina Sandnes says:

    Could you talk more about binocular vision disorders and problems because of it? I’m nearsighted and have a binocular vision disorder, so I struggle with focusing, consentrating and I have bad coordination. I used to have strabismus, it’s better now. Because I didn’t get help as a child, my eye doctor told me it’s basically too late to fix it, but I can make it stop getting worse by using prism glasses.

  3. Richard Smith says:

    When I was younger, I was far more nearsighted than I am now. If the lens hardens with age, why would it be easier for me to focus as I age? I am 35 years old now, and my prescription has dropped from -1.75 to -0.75. (I also have a lazy eye which is worse, but it has also improved). When I was younger I also found it impossible to get stereoscopic vision effect cause of my lazy eye, my brain just discarded the information from that eye. Stereoscopic vision returned as I aged as well.

  4. elizabeth erwin says:

    Can someone have both near and farsightedness? If so, how would this affect determining their prescription?

  5. silverkeen07 says:

    I don’t wear glasses but I’ve been seeing blurry from my right eye for over a year now. Lol

  6. Juan Morales says:

    Two questions: are you wearing color contacts? And what do you recommend to do to stop my myopia from increasing?

  7. rowanessence says:

    Cool video. I'm nearsighted. I'm curious about contact lens care? I have a really bad habit of leaving my contacts in for days…

  8. Craftybunny says:

    when I was younger I had better than 20/20 vision, but once I hit mid 40's I started becoming farsighted. I wear readers +1.50s most of the time, I switch to +2.00 when I am sewing. I got talked into trying continuum (I think that's the term) glasses because I spend a lot of time in front of a computer, the problem with those were I had to wear them low so that I could look over the top for distance and they were too heavy for that. So I wear readers at the end of my nose like an old lady. sigh

  9. Alexandria Thrash says:

    So I was wondering if you could explain accommodation issues? I’ve been told I am farsighted and that the muscles of my eyes over tighten and over relax causing a delay in my vision. I can see without my glasses it just takes about 30 seconds for my eyesight to switch between distances, my glasses just help stop that delay. Does this make sense? Hoping you could explain it better. Thanks!

  10. Rachel Hunt says:

    Extremely nearsighted, to the point I have fallen asleep in my glasses because I want to still be able to see

  11. Noob StudiosZ says:

  14. Meng Meng says:

  15. daria harruff says:

  16. Aze ras says:

    I have 1 question. My friend sight is 20% out of 100% and he is nearsighted, so how much diopters he have?

  17. itsmorrows says:

    I'm farsighted and nearsighted I'm just curious if I could wear eye contacts

  18. Washington Akharamen says:

    Hi! I got glasses for the first time about 2 weeks ago. Based on my prescription, I believe I am farsighted with astigmatism in both eyes. With my glasses on, I can see nearby objects okay, but objects that are further away are very blurry. Is this normal? Is my prescription too strong? I thought it would have corrected by now. I am in dental school and my glasses are pretty much only useful while doing lab work where I have to look at objects up close, but walking up stairs/driving is pretty scary with the glasses on…HELP!

  19. Janette Good says:

    I have only one good eye. The left is a lazy eye and corrective surgery did not work at 20 yo. I had eye exercise at age 6 to 7 years to strengthen the right eye to 20/30. I have 7 eye disorders and it is hard to fit glasses on me. I have read and done a lot of eye education. YOU have explained eye problems the BEST I have ever seen. I have been going to specialist for over 60 years and I have learned more from you in one hour. Thank you sir.

  20. Adeola Ogundele says:

    I'm long sighted with astigmatism.
    My vision has become worse over the past few years, where everything is blurry – especially when I'm tired and at night time.
    Your videos have really helped me to understand my issues. Thank you!

  21. Gian Zap says:

    hi sir What Is happening if my eyesight is Far and near At the same time Pls Help me😭

  22. Amanda Diaz says:

    Youngest doctor ever.

  23. void_Presence says:

    I've been wearing glasses (far-sighted) since I was 8 (I'm now 44); at the time, the eye doctor said to my mother 'he CANNOT read <with his prescription>' even though I had been for years, and kept insisting that I could not read. hehe

    Now of course, I cannot read without glasses.

  24. jbarah05 says:

    So I’ve had the same prescription for almost two years sense I’ve been using contacts i have two astigmatism both at 70 axis not even that has change. Can it be the use of contact lens that has reduced strain on my eye? I started wearing lens about 5 years ago.

  25. brenn franklin says:

    So… I’m 19 lol.. my prescription is L +7.50 and R +5.25.. I can’t go without them. I don’t think or remember my doctors ever telling me I had a stigmatism, but some sort of eye disease and I’m practically blind in my left eye.. any ideas??

  26. Sunflower Animations says:

    I'm farsighted

  27. Christopher James Willington says:

    Can you please be my future husband?

  28. Christopher James Willington says:

    I’m very near sighted

  29. Daniel Alvarez says:

    can you cure myopia doc?

  30. foxylee says:

    Nearsighted until I got Lasik ten years ago. Now I'm farsighted aand need reading glasses the age of 34. I feel old.

  31. Z.J. Robertson says:

    How close to your face should you be able to read? I had an exam but the letters were extremely close to my face and it was just hard to focus in on. He wasn’t an eye doctor it was just a physical.

  32. Can we get 5000 subscribers with no videos? says:

    When i look at something like my phone and i look up again i see things blurred but if i look far for some time its like my eyes kind of get used to it and see clearly again. Do I need glasses doc?

  33. Dee x Sean says:

    I just got an eye test today and I’m farsighted and I was wondering what it was and I’m glad I watched this video

  34. Ceri Kim says:

    I'm farsighted (I wear contacts), so this video was really interesting to me!
    I'm currently living in South Korea. Fun fact: you might be surprised to find out that hyperopia is extremely rare among the Korean population; and as a result, many opticians here really aren't able to accurately prescribe for it at all. I was given prescriptions between +0.25 and +2.75 by various eye doctors last time I needed a check-up, and was even told by two different opticians that I have presbyopia. I have had glasses for farsightedness since I was 14! I've entirely given up now and just get my eyes tested when I visit my family back home! 🤣

  35. Charles Voss says:

    yeet

  36. Tree Time says:

    I have a question… I am 47 and started using eyeglasses to read and look at my phone 3 years ago, it's gotten worst like when I wake up for some reason I have to wait a while before I start seeing better, I hate it so much! Does laser help? o what can you advise for this condition? maybe contacts? I don't want to use glasses anymore, especially because of my profession… if I use glasses they just get foggy, it sucks so bad!

  37. Renaldo Simpson says:

    Thanks now I know I'm near sighted I thought I was going blind. Lol but I have a question. I work during the night and I sleep during the day. Can this be a reason why I'm having problems seeing things clearly in the distance?

  38. billie 17 says:

    Quick question. So my prescription aka eyesight WITH glasses is 1.75. How do I know my eyesight WITHOUT GLASSES from that? Been searching everywhere & getting weird eye remedies instead lol

  39. Girl 33 says:

    Hi Eye Doctor. If a 41 year old myopic whose prescription is -2.75 reduces her number to just -2, will she be able to read her phone comfortably? Will it be equivalent to wearing +0.75?? Thanks

  40. OH MY, OH NO, THE GRAPES ARE COMING!!!!! says:

    fricking help. my left eye is nearsighted, my right eye is farsighted, sometimes when i try to look at near things my vision switches from left to right, left to right, left to right. same with looking at far things.
    i hate my vision.

  41. Pura Periculo says:

    Kitty!!

  42. Holly Letson says:

    I'm nearsighted, and have astigmatism. I wear glasses for it.

  43. 888 Gaming says:

    Why do my eyes change color?

  44. TheodoraViolet18 says:

    I'm actually nearsighted in one eye, and farsighted in the other. Just wondering how often this condition occurs and how does it happen? Is it typically genetic? Maybe more of a nurture type situation? Currently wear both glasses and contacts, but tend to wear my glasses more due to allergies. I was actually told by my doctor that contacts are the better option as they correct the condition better than glasses. Thank you!

  45. shocklett says:

    The plus side of being nearsighted is that everyone looks better instantly since the airbrush/blurring effect filter is permanently in the eye lolololol

  46. Bubbly Hippie says:

    This video really helped me out. I’m nearsighted with a astigmatism.

  47. peaches minaj says:

  49. Sarah Moore says:

    Is it true all near sighted people will eventually become far sighted??

  50. MichaelAngelo Palacio says:

    I am nearsighted

  51. Deepanshu Sharma says:

    whats that in your eye its scary

  52. David Bursky says:

    I know some farsighted people who say they need glasses for close and far. How does farsightedness effect problems seeing far away with moderate to strong plus lenses? like +5 to +8 etc.?

  53. Michael Zimmerman says:

    I have compound myopic astigmatism :/

  54. Just Kryztine says:

    I'm near sighted… Now, I'm scared…

  55. aruna devi says:

    Is there any medicine to get rid of hypermetropia.

  56. Juan Morales says:

    Ahhh I’m scared I’m 11 and have a nearsightedness of -3.00 thats the same as my brother of 19 years old!! It’s increasing to fast I don’t know what to do. Plus I’m also colorblind I hate my eyes ughhh

  57. Stranger Memes says:

    I'm Nearsighted but I had to watch a video because I had the definitions switched around but heard the doctor say I was near sighted and I got confused lol.

  58. Irvin Orellana says:

    Hi. My son has been bullied alot in school due to his magnify prescription glasses. He wear 8+. Super thick glass!. My question is…can a surgery correct his farsighted problem?

  59. Gerald L says:

    Myopic since age11….about a year ago ,presbyopia set in with a reduction in my far correction…yay!

  60. flbw 369 says:

    Hey guys,I am near sighted, as a result I have observed my eyeballs grew longer and in turn it looks like I have bigger popping eyes. What can I do to reverse this. PS I didn't have this this enlargement issue until 2 years ago.

  61. ZekGT says:

    Idk if this is Hyperopia , When i wake up from my sleep i see things that are very far from me , this happens rarely

  62. Tae Purples U says:

    I kinda feel comfort seeing people having the same condition as mine. I always feel like sht with these eyes

  63. TheBubster 2001 says:

    Don't stare at the dudes eyes it creeps you out

  64. MISTIC 07 says:

    I'm nearsighted and sometimes my glasses perscription is to strong when i see up close

  65. Dan Partridge says:

    Hi Doc. I'm 29 and nearsighted. Born with an Optic Disc Pit in my right eye and undergone four retinal reattachment surgeries to try and preserve any vision. Unfortunately, the end result was incredibly vague shapes through that eye and not much else. My left eye has never had any issues (knock on wood), however, it is corrected with a -6.25 lens. Should I be concerned about it due to anything over -6 technically being classified as "high myopia?" Thanks! Love the channel!

  66. mari sharifashvili says:

    Hi, I'm farsighted, i have +1, but my doctor prescribed +0.5 glass lenses for reading and computer use. can you tell if that's right and why?

  67. S Vlogs says:

    Idk what my sight is.Before like a few months ago my eyesight used to be perfect until September I looked in the distance and suddenly everything in the distance was blurry and I couldn’t even see my board in class I’ve been telling my mom but she hasn’t been doing anything I’ve been begging her to take me to the opticians and she isn’t help! I really don’t want glasses I want my eyesight back naturally I’m begging for my eyesight to be normal and like before again 😭😫

  68. Iunity says:

    I’m nearsighted

  69. Dorie Na says:

    ive been myopic since i was 10 and i just got glasses a month ago bc the school clinic now required it because i can't see clearly even a meter away my eyes

  70. Erica Roka says:

    I’m scared because I’m 10 and when I watched another video that you could go blind if u have myopia and my right eye has myopia well idk yet but I’m pretty sure because when I close my left eye from far away It’s blurry and when my finger is right in front of me it’s not and when I open both eyes and I can see properly and I wear glasses and when I wear glasses and close my left eye my vision is ok but I don’t want to go blind and I do eye exercises from YouTube but my eye sight in my right eye is kind of getting is worse because when my finger is like 1m away from my eyes it’s blurry so I’m scared 😭😭😭😭

  71. ICanSlightlyFly says:

    I had an eye exam and discovered I have presbyopia, never had glasses before so will need them for both distance and reading. Have been prescribed varifocals. Are they easy to get used to?

  72. puffiolee puff says:

    Hi from Greece 🇬🇷 I have myopia (near-sighted) but only on my left eye ! I have 6.75 degrees and I can't wear glasses ! Just tried lenses today for the first time and you really helped me ! Keep up Doc 😁🇬🇷🇬🇷🇬🇷🇬🇷🇬🇷

  73. Otie Brown says:

    What a choice. There is no normal eye!

  74. Atsede A. says:

    Thanks for the help

  75. Amber Regier says:

    I was told that I CAN see with 20/20 vision, but I strain to do so… I was told that I will have to wear glasses to stop my headaches. Will that strain ever go away, or will I always be stuck wearing glasses or contacts?

  76. Polar1over2_5 X says:

    I am nearsighted I have myopia which can cause the eyeball to increase size and can cause blindness
    I use eye drops that increase the size of my pupil to decrease the growth of my eyeball

  79. Dark Angel says:

    I'm short sighted and I wear glasses. I want to try contact lenses because I do martial arts and glasses are inconvenient.

  80. Manish Arora says:

    My uncle had very serious problem termed as Hypermetropia, It is also called long-sightedness.He used Ayurvedic remedies of Planet Ayurveda and got very effective results. So, to get rid of these problems use “Angel Eye Vitale & Bilberry Capsules " by "Planet Ayurveda". These remedies are really very beneficial.

  81. Waterliliy says:

    i was farsighted, had reading glasses from age 9 to 24 but last year that changed i'm now nearsighted with astigmatism

  82. residentevilfanatic7 says:

    I'm both nearsighted and farsighted 😑 plus I have astigmatism

  83. Sofia Karjala says:

    Do I need glasses if only my right eye is nearsighted?

  84. robloxgirlover 1 says:

    im nearsighted and I still don't wear glasses yet..im still waiting for them

  85. NintendoFanBoy07 says:

    I'm 31 and I might be nearsighted. I will have to go to my eye doctor soon because everytime I'm trying to read text on TV all the letters are blurry and when I go up close to the TV it's in focus.

  86. stephanie rando says:

    Isn't it also true that people who are farsighted also have a tendency to be eagle eyed at a distance? I have hyperopia, and I have a hard time focusing on things that are close to me. I use reading glasses. My eye doctor said that my distance vision (20/15) is associated with hyperopia.

  87. Sebastian Ramagosa says:

    The one topic you didn't go over is that you can cure your vision with eye exercises. I recommend the "quantum eye theory." I believe that is the name

  88. Minna L says:

    A bit far sighted on one eye, but it’s not that bad since I keep forgetting which one… Dad is astigmatic and didn’t get glasses until he was around four (so weird solution to depth perception). Mum has glasses sometimes, used to be only when driving and now reading glasses. Sis has one normal eye and the other was at -10 when she was little so she was half blind (it got better. She’s an airline pilot)

  89. Zaheer Mahroof says:

    Dear doctor
    I am using eye glasses more than 35yrs. I am 45 years now I cannot see small letters with my glass. so I am seeing without glasses do I need to change as a bifocals

  90. S Chang says:

    Sr. Allen, thank you for making this video. I have a question. Myopia control is usually for children. I have never heard of this my entire life as I have visited numberous eye doctors. So here's the question… what about adult? Can it not be applied to adult to stem possible future eye issues? The pheriphery hypertropia is also another thing I never heard of either. Wouldn't this also be addressed by orthokeratology? I know this get into murkier water for everyone who wears water and the headache of fitting glasses for people with very high prescription… +/- 5.00. Thank you. BTW, I did not see a link for a video on myopia control.

  91. TunaFilms Productions says:

    I’m farsighted and I wear glasses and I have an astigmatism and blepharitis

  92. f f says:

    Its only nonsense I have a problem why you have glasses behind you. I been wearing glasses for 30 years my eyes got worse not better.

  93. Paul Hojda says:

    I'm farsighted. I need +3 lenses or glasses. I can see perfectly clearly without correction, but after a few hours, i get eye fatigue. Any possibilities for laser operation? I heard it's more difficult to correct farsightedness than nearsightedness

  94. Rubens Metoli says:

    So if you have big eyes you are nearsighted but if you have small eyes you are farsighted ?

  95. Xx NASH xX says:

    Are u wearing contacts? Cool looking eyes

  96. wm3293 says:

    Nearsighted I had yearly eye exams never need glasses until I was 29 Started off with -1.25 left eye -.75 right eye now I'm 34 -3.25 left eye -1.75 right eye with .90 astigmatism why such a sudden change in 5 years?

  97. SeikiBrian says:

    6:43 "We call that 'presbyopia,' which is literally Latin for 'old eyes'."

    * Greek + Latin. The "presby-" part comes from the Greek πρεσβύτερος (presbyteros), meaning "elder."

  98. Dreah says:

    I'm near sighted. It started when I was 11.

  99. Oz Lang says:

    Or is it shortsighted vs longsighted?!
