How words up close might look to a farsighted person

Source: Healthwise, Incorporated, P.O. Box 1989, Boise, ID 83701. All rights reserved.

People who are farsighted see things at a distance more easily than they see things up close. If you are very farsighted, close objects may be so blurry that you can't do tasks such as reading or sewing.

How farsightedness affects you will likely change as you age.
