If it's easy for you to see things far away but you have trouble seeing things that are close, you might be farsighted. A lot of kids who have trouble reading books are farsighted. Being farsighted is the opposite of being nearsighted (which means you're able to see things that are up close). But don't worry about being farsighted because some cool glasses will get you reading in no time.
