What is Hyperopia?

Hyperopia-also known as farsightedness—is a common type of refractive error (astigmatism and myopia are additional examples).  A refractive error causes a disruption in the way light enters the eye so that it doesn't focus properly on the retina (a thin tissue on the inside of the rear of the eye containing specialized cells that help you see).

In hyperopia, light entering the eye focuses on a spot “behind” the retina. This generally happens because the eyeball is too short, and/or because the lens or cornea in your eye is abnormally shaped. Estimates show around 5 to 10% of Americans of all ages are living with it.

Signs & Symptoms of Hyperopia

Have you ever noticed someone hold their phone far away from them in order to read the text on the screen clearly? This is a classic sign of uncorrected hyperopia. Generally, people with hyperopia can see things more clearly at a distance but have blurry vision when looking at objects up close. Severe hyperopia can affect vision at all distances.

In addition to blurry vision, hyperopia can also cause eye strain, squinting, and headaches. 

How Our Optometrists Manage Hyperopia 

While hyperopia is common in people of all ages, our Spring optometry team can manage it quite well through a variety of techniques and services

The first step is to confirm an accurate diagnosis. We do this on a comprehensive eye exam, where we assess your patient history, evaluate the anatomy of your eye, and test your visual acuity and other aspects of your eyesight. 

Based on our diagnosis, we can then implement an appropriate hyperopia treatment plan for you, potentially including: 

  • Corrective eyeglasses and/or contact lenses 
  • Low vision strategies and patient education (e.g., enlarging your text size on your phone)
  • Pre- and post-operative care if LASIK eye surgery is elected
