A. Distant objects opaque
B. Distant object clearly
C. Close objects unclear
D. Close objects clearly

Check Answer

The correct answer is option B) Distant object clearly.

Hypermetropia or Hyperopia means being able to see distant objects clearly, but close objects appear unclear or blurry. It is also known as farsightedness. In hypermetropia, the eyeball is shorter than normal, or the cornea is flatter than normal, which causes the light entering the eye to focus behind the retina instead of on it. This makes near objects appear blurry. However, distant objects can still be seen clearly because the light rays from them are not diverged as much, and so they focus on the retina. To correct hypermetropia, convex lenses are used, which converge the light rays before they enter the eye, allowing them to focus on the retina.
