What is Hyperopia?

Farsightedness is the common term for Hyperopia; it happens when an eye does not have enough focusing power.  If you have Hyperopia you tend to see objects better if they’re far away, so you are farsighted.

  • Blurriness or a problem reading small print, especially in dim light
  • Headaches
  • Blurry vision while driving

Hyperopia Treatment Options

Contact Lenses and Eyeglasses

Hyperopia can be corrected with certain eyeglasses or contact lenses, but they do not cure the irregularly curved cornea that’s causing the blurry vision; this correction can only be done with surgery.  Patients also find it inconvenient to wear and maintain contact lenses and eyeglasses on a daily basis.

Laser Vision Correction for Farsightedness (PRK and Lasik Surgery for Farsightedness)

Lasik surgery to correct hyperopia is a great option; it may decrease or completely eliminate the need for eyeglasses and/or contact lenses.  Our Orange County Lasik patients have experienced excellent results after their Lasik surgery for farsightedness.
