What is Hyperopia?
Hyperopia is being able to see objects that are of further distance better than objects that are near. This can be caused by the cornea of the eye being too short or unable to focus correctly. The cornea and the lens focus light that comes into the eye directly on the retina and sends the image to the brain. With hyperopia, the image lands behind the retina, which results in blurry vision.
Symptoms of Hyperopia
The symptoms include:
- Having a hard time focusing on close objects
- Blurred vision
- Frequent headaches
- Constantly straining eyes
- Fatigue after doing a task such as reading
How Is Hyperopia Diagnosed?
A hyperopia diagnosis can be given by an ophthalmologist or eye doctor after a routine eye exam. Eye doctors test for hyperopia by having patients read a chart from across a room. If the doctor suspects hyperopia, a retinoscope analyzes how light reflects off the retina. After a diagnosis is given, our staff will determine the correct prescription or treatment to improve your vision.
LASIK Surgery for Farsightedness or Hyperopia
LASIK for farsightedness is most effective when the cause of the hyperopia is a misshapen cornea. LASIK can reshape the cornea to enable light to properly focus on the retina instead of behind. Our team of ophthalmologists and doctors offer hyperopia treatments to clients in areas such as Ann Arbor, Jackson, Toledo, Battle Creek, and Kalamazoo. LASIK eye surgery can help patients with farsightedness see clearer and oftentimes no longer need glasses or contacts.

Alternatives to LASIK Eye Surgery
LASIK is not always the best treatment plan for hyperopia. Your eye doctor might recommend an alternative to LASIK, such as:
- Prescription eyeglasses and contacts
- Refractive eye surgery
Refractive Lens Exchange Surgery
If LASIK eye surgery is not right for you, there are alternative treatments available for hyperopia. Refractive lens exchange surgery can be a great alternative to LASIK for farsightedness. The natural lens in the eye is replaced by an intraocular lens to provide clearer, sharper eyesight and less reliance on glasses and contacts. Our ophthalmologists and doctors offer refractive lens exchange surgery and treatments in your area. Our team is committed to helping you discover ways to improve your vision.
Refractive lens exchange can fit any type of farsightedness and is a great alternative for those with:
- Age-related farsightedness, or presbyopia
- Extreme refractive vision issues
- Abnormally shaped cornea where LASIK is not beneficial
