Hypermetropia (Farsightedness)

Eye Treatments

Are you tired of struggling with blurry vision up close? Our hypermetropia correction treatments can help you see the world in a whole new way.

Hypermetropia, also known as farsightedness, is a common vision problem in which distant objects are seen more clearly than nearby objects. This occurs because the eyeball is too short or the cornea is too flat, causing the light to focus behind the retina instead of directly on it. Hypermetropia can cause blurred vision, eyestrain, headaches, and difficulty reading or doing close work.

Hypermetropia can be diagnosed through a comprehensive eye examination, which may include a visual acuity test, a refraction test, and a slit-lamp examination. Treatment for hypermetropia typically involves corrective lenses, such as glasses or contact lenses, which help to refocus the light onto the retina. In some cases, refractive surgery may be recommended to reshape the cornea and improve vision.

It can cause a range of symptoms such as blurred vision, eyestrain, headaches, and difficulty focusing on nearby objects. People with hypermetropia may find it challenging to read books, use a computer, or perform tasks that require close-up vision. Squinting or rubbing the eyes frequently can also be a sign of this disease.

Hypermetropia can be managed effectively with proper treatment and care. Regular eye examinations are important for detecting and treating this disease, as well as other eye conditions. Maintaining good eye health through a healthy lifestyle and protective eyewear can also help to prevent vision problems.

FAQ

Is hypermetropia genetic?

Yes, hypermetropia can be genetic. If one or both parents have it, there is a higher chance that their children may also develop the condition. However, environmental factors, such as prolonged near work and reading in poor lighting conditions, can also contribute to the development of it.

When hypermetropia stops?

Hypermetropia can be corrected with prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses that help to focus light on the retina properly. In some cases, refractive surgery can also be done to reshape the cornea and improve vision. It typically stabilizes in adults around the age of 40 when the lens of the eye begins to harden and lose its flexibility. However, it is important to continue to have regular eye exams as other eye conditions can develop as we age.

Why hypermetropia occurs?

It occurs when the eyeball is too short or the cornea is not curved enough, causing light to focus behind the retina instead of directly on it. As a result, close-up objects appear blurry, while distant objects may be seen more clearly. Hypermetropia can also occur when the lens in the eye becomes less flexible with age, making it harder to focus on nearby objects. In some cases, it can be caused by a combination of these factors. It can be present at birth, or it can develop later in life. It is often hereditary, meaning it can run in families.

How hypermetropia can be corrected?

Hypermetropia can be corrected with eyeglasses or contact lenses that change the way light enters the eye, allowing it to focus correctly on the retina. Refractive surgery, such as LASIK or PRK, can also be used to reshape the cornea and improve vision. In some cases, a combination of eyeglasses or contact lenses and surgery may be recommended. It is important to have regular eye exams to detect early and prevent any further vision problems.

What hyperopia symptoms?

Symptoms of hyperopia may include blurred vision when looking at objects up close, eye strain, headaches, and difficulty focusing on close-up tasks such as reading. It can be corrected with eyeglasses, contact lenses, or refractive surgery. It is important to have regular eye exams to detect and treat early to prevent vision problems.
