Hyperopia

My son aged 5 did not have any headaches or anyhting but I noticed that he could not tell the time without going very near to the wall clock. He could not tell the time from about 10-15 feet from  the clock. I was worried and got his eyesight checked and is diagnosed with Hyperopia and astigmatism +5.5 in both the eyes.
I am worried about the issue. the doctor tells me that he is far sigted and I feel he is having difficulty in seeing things that are far away.
My question is, Is this conditions treatable? Will this increase as he grows up? My daughter age 8 is also hyperopic +5. I am worried about both of them.
I am in japan, the language is a big issue here . Please help and guide.
