What exactly does "long sighted" mean? We say "far sighted" and "near sighted," but the only time I can think of someone being described as "long sighted" is in a fantasy book ...
"Long sighted" means the same as "far sighted"
It's the difference between British and American usage. We also say "short sighted" not "near sighted".
Very interesting. Short-sightedness only refers to something like a lack of forethought ...
It has both meanings depending on context.
Long sighted is a far more common in Wales (the UK?) than far sighted in my experience.
I am long-sighted, and that is what I have always called it.
I used "far sighted" in my answer, but it wasn't accepted.
Report it as American usage and then it will be accepted.
