Farsighted – and What Can Be Done

Many people depend on glasses or contact lenses due to being farsighted. EuroEyes can correct this vision disorder by using different treatment options making it possible to live a life free of glasses.

The Difference between normal Vision and Farsightedness

Farsightedness, also known as hypermetropia results in blurry vision when objects are near whereas objects in the distance remain clear. Farsightedness can become a hindrance in daily life as reading without glasses is almost impossible and may cause headaches.

The Difference Between Normal Vision and Farsightedness

Normal Vision Good vision requires a sharp image being produced on the retina at the back of the eye. The optical system (cornea, crystalline lens and vitreous body) of a normal eye diverts light rays in a way that they land exactly in focus at the point of best vision on the retina, the so-called makula. This diversion of light rays is called refraction. The total refractive power is expressed in diopters (D). Total refractive power is determined on the basis of the different parts of the optical system. When the total refraction is zero diopters, objects will be depicted sharply on the retina. The optical correction of farsightedness increases the refractive power of the optical system, moving the focal point forwards onto the retina.
Normal Vision

Farsightedness In a farsighted eye, the incoming light rays are refracted in a way that the focal point is located behind the retina. Distant objects may still be seen clearly, because the lens adjusts. However, near objects generally appear blurry. In most cases the reason for this refractive error is that the eye is shorter than a normal eye.

Which Method Is Right One for Me?

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.
