This is relatively easy in treating myopic patients, entailing moving a fine target slowly away from the patient. The farthest distance at which it can be seen clearly represents the far point. Indeed, this technique was described in 1623 by Benito Daza de Valdes,101 who drew out a handful of mustard seeds into a row and instructed the subject to count the seeds until they became indistinct. 16 D. This procedure will not work for hyperopic patients, for whom the far point is located behind the eye.
