Vision is an important aspect of an individual's general quality of life. Vision impairment can affect daily activities, job performance, favorite pastimes, and even exercise. Hyperopia, also often known as farsightedness, is among the most prevalent types of vision problems. It results in the decreased ability to focus on objects that are at close range. Activities, like reading, working on the computer, or even showering, can become more difficult. Luckily, there are many options to manage your hyperopia. At The Eye Center of Southern Indiana, our experienced team can offer a complete eye exam with R. Daniel Grossman, M.D. and his team, helping you get one step closer to your best vision.
How Is Hyperopia Treated?
During your visit at The Eye Center of Southern Indiana, your optometrist will perform a thorough eye exam to check your general eye health. Every comprehensive exam will include routine vision acuity tests and other assessments of how your eyes are functioning. Patients can opt for glasses, contacts, or both to correct their vision, depending on their daily routines, and we will help you select the best lenses for your eyes. Certain patients with hyperopia may also consider laser vision correction procedures, such as LASIK or PRK. Once your optometrist completes your exams, we will talk with you about whether refractive surgery is an effective option for you. For those who are candidates, refractive surgery can offer remarkable long-term outcomes.
"My husband had a chalazion removed from his lower eye lid, and we had a great experience! Everyone was so friendly, from the receptionist out front to Dr. Andrew Huck! It was a quick process, and Dr. Huck walked us through each step of the procedure. He made us feel so comfortable and cared for. Thank you for all you guys do!!"- E.W. / Yelp / Oct 06, 2021
"They are very thorough in caring for new patients. They are conscious of covid 19 protocols. The practice has both ophthalmologist as well as optometrists. In case you need eye surgery, the surgery center is on the lower level. As a new patient I appreciate what they have to offer for eye care."- M.H. / Yelp / Mar 25, 2021

"Outstanding surgeon for my lasik! The eye center of southern Indiana is a top notch facility - I chose it over anything in the Indianapolis area because it's the best. "- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Jun 02, 2017
"I just had my LASIK eye surgery done with Dr. Mackey at the Eye Center yesterday. I recommend it highly, and wish I had done it sooner. The staff was as sweet as can be, and I felt so comfortable the entire time. I would really like to thank Dr.Mackey, Dr Gray and Melissa for taking such good care of me. There was virtually no wait times which cut down on my nerves substantially. The procedure itself was completely painless and was over before I knew it. I’m super pleased with my experience:)"- C.E. / Yelp / Dec 04, 2015
