The human eye behaves as a perfect optical system in a very small percentage of population. When the rays of light coming from a distant target, gets perfectly focused on the retina, the condition is called emmetropia

Refractive errors

Refractive errors

Hyperopia or long sightedness

Refers to a state of the eye, wherein the rays of light coming from a distant target, get focused at a point behind the retina. In this situation, plus powered glasses or contact lenses are necessary to focus this image onto the retina

Refractive errors
