FARSIGHTEDNESS - TO UNDERSTAND HYPEROPIA AND GET TREATED

Many people suffer from ametropia such as farsightedness (hyperopia). Farsighted people usually see clearly in the distance, whereas near vision deteriorates continuously. In farsightedness, the normal proportion of the eyeball length and the refractive eye power is changed. As a result, the relaxed eye is not able to focus targeted objects on the retina, but only behind it. Headaches, sore eyes and rapid fatigue often occur. Would you like to see clearly in the distance again – without glasses and contact lenses? We offer various options for correcting farsightedness.

WHICH METHOD IS THE RIGHT ONE FOR ME WITH FARSIGHTEDNESS?

Prior to treatment, a thorough examination and consultation will always take place in order to determine whether or not the patient is a suitable candidate for laser eye treatment. Safety and diagnostics are our absolute priorities. If the examination reveals that you aren’t a suitable candidate, you will be offered another solution to correct your refractive error.

LASER EYE SURGERIES FOR THE TREATMENT OF FARSIGHTEDNESS

We use two different laser eye methods to treat farsightedness or hyperopia. We also use this if the farsightedness occurs in combination with astigmatism.

 LENS SURGERIES FOR THE TREATMENT OF FARSIGHTEDNESS

In addition to the laser eye procedures, we also offer lens surgeries, which are particularly attractive if the farsightedness is age-related or we determine on the basis of the preliminary examination that the laser eye methods are anatomically not an optimal procedure to restore your vision.

DIAGNOSIS OF FARSIGHTEDNESS

If hyperopia is suspected, the EuroEyes ophthalmologist will perform the following examinations:

  1. Objective refraction determination: Using a special device (refractometer), the doctor determines to what extent the refractive power of the eye deviates from the normal state.
  2. Subjective refraction determination: This examination is carried out with the help of measuring glasses and provides information about the actual visual acuity. The patient looks through lenses of different strengths and evaluates with which strength he can see best.

During the detailed preliminary examination, it is determined how severe the ametropia is and which procedure the patient is suitable for.

 

FARSIGHTEDNESS IN CONTRAST TO PRESBYOPIA

A basic distinction is made between presbyopia and farsightedness (hyperopia). While presbyopia is an age-related visual disorder that most of the people get between 45 and 60 and is characterized by the progressive loss of natural flexibility and clarity of the lens. The congenital cause of farsightedness is almost always too short eyeball.
