Hyperopia (Farsightedness)

Hyperopia is a vision condition in which you can see distant objects clearer than nearer ones. The severity of hyperopia can vary. People with severe hyperopia or farsightedness may see only objects at a great distance clearly.

Causes

Hyperopia occurs when the eyeball is shorter than normal or when the cornea is curved too little.

Symptoms
  • Objects nearby appear blurred
  • Eye strain and resultant headache
  • Squinting of eyes frequently to see properly
  • Burning sensation and pain in or around eyes
  • Discomfort while performing tasks such as reading or writing
Diagnosis

Diagnosis of hyperopia involves a basic eye examination.

  • Eye exam
    • Refraction assessment
    • Eye health exam
Prevention

There are no exact ways to prevent the condition. Some of the measures to control and reduce the progression of hyperopia include:

  • Regular eye examinations
  • Yearly checkups
  • Reduce screen time
  • Reduce eye strain 
  • Use good lighting
Treatment

There is no best method for the treatment of hyperopia. The major treatment goal is to attain a clearer vision by focusing light rays on the retina. Treatment methods include:

  • Corrective lenses or prescription lenses to improve vision. They can be eyeglasses or contact lenses.
  • Refractive surgery: a surgical procedure used to reshape the cornea using laser beams. There are different types of refractive surgery.
