What Is Hyperopia (Farsightedness)?
Hyperopia is a common refractive error of the eye that makes it difficult to focus on objects that are close. People who are farsighted often see distant objects clearly, while objects nearby most often appear blurry.
Treatment Options for Hyperopia
When treating hyperopia, the goal is to allow your eyes to focus on objects up close. The most common way to achieve this is through corrective glasses and contact lenses. Eye surgery such as LASIK is available for adults and those with mild to moderate levels of farsightedness. The most appropriate treatment for you depends on your eyes and your lifestyle.
