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, helping you get one step closer to your best vision.
What are the Symptoms of Hyperopia?
Patients with hyperopia may not realize it until their close-up vision begins to decline. The inability to focus on objects near the eyes is the most notable symptom of being farsighted. Patients who do not manage their condition may experience problems when spending time on close-up tasks such as reading, writing, or using the computer. Migraines and headaches also result from the constant strain. Anyone who still has symptoms of hyperopia should visit The Eye Center of Southern Indiana for a comprehensive vision exam. We can determine if your prescription needs to be adjusted.
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.
