Symptoms of Farsightedness

If you’re farsighted, your eyes have to work hard to see anything up close. Some of the symptoms of farsightedness are due to this extra eyestrain. Symptoms include:

  • tension
  • fatigue
  • blurry vision up close
  • squinting to see better
  • an aching or burning sensation around your eyes
  • a headache after reading or other tasks that require you to focus on something up close

Some children develop strabismus (crossed eyes) because their farsightedness hasn’t been diagnosed and corrected. Farsightedness in children can also contribute to problems with learning to read and write.
