Hyperopia (Farsightedness)

Hyperopia, or farsightedness, simply means that you are able to see objects in the distance clearly while those up close are blurry. However, some people with hyperopia cannot see clearly at a distance or up close. This eye condition is the opposite of myopia. Light rays entering the eye do not focus correctly, usually due to the cornea (the clear layer of tissue at the front of the eye) not having enough curvature or the eye itself being too short.

Common signs of farsightedness include difficulty in concentrating and maintaining a clear focus on near objects, eye strain, fatigue, and/or headaches. Many children are born with hyperopia, and some of them “outgrow” it as the eyeball lengthens with normal growth.

Hyperopia Treatment

The degree of hyperopia present is detected through a comprehensive eye examination at TriCounty Eye Institute, and glasses or contact lenses are prescribed to correct your vision. Dr. Schneider, one of the most experienced laser vision correction specialists in the nation, can also perform laser vision correction procedures such as LASIK to treat hyperopia in adults over the age of 18. This involves reshaping the cornea by removing a small amount of eye tissue. This is accomplished by using a highly focused laser beam on the surface of the eye.
