Hyperopia is a common vision condition in adults.
People with hyperopia must squint to see nearby objects. Reading, writing, computer work, or drawing for long periods of time may cause eye strain and headache.
Treatment options include eyeglasses, contact lenses, and surgery such as LASIK.
Astigmatism is a common vision problem caused by an error in the shape of the cornea. With astigmatism, the lens of the eye or the cornea, which is the front surface of the eye, has an irregular curve. This can change the way light passes, or refracts, to your retina. This causes blurry, fuzzy, or distorted vision.

Dry eye occurs when the eye does not produce tears properly. Dry eye can make it more difficult to perform some activities, such as using a computer or reading for an extended period of time.
