Farsighted = hyperopia = eye shorter than normal. Many people say "you can see far away but not up close". That's not correct. It's complicated but a young person that's farsighted can see both near and distance. A 40 year old will need reading glasses and as they age they need bifocal type lens and cannot see well without.
Nearsighed = myopia eye longer than normal. Distance vision blurred, near vison may be clear or blurry depending on how much myopia is present.
Presbyopia = loss of focusing that occurs with age. Most often starts early 40s.
+ .50 diopter sphere corrects for farsighted or presbyopia. In a young person sometimes prescribed for a muscle problem convergence insufficiency that can cause eye fatigue with near tasks.
