Hyperopia is easily treated, with two primary treatment options to help focus light on the retina: corrective lenses and refractive surgery.
Prescription lenses can improve your vision by counteracting the diminished curve of your cornea or the smaller size of your eye. This can be done either through eyeglasses (such as single vision, bifocals, and trifocals) or contact lenses. Your eye care specialists can walk you through the pros and cons of each to determine what will work best for you.
Refractive surgery (using a laser beam to reshape the curves of the cornea) improves your vision without the need for corrective lenses. While it’s generally used to treat nearsightedness, refractive surgical procedures can also correct mild to moderate farsightedness. The primary types of refractive surgery for hyperopia include LASIK and photorefractive keratectomy (PRK). Visionary Eye Doctors has experts in both these areas and will evaluate you to determine the right surgery for your optimal vision.
