What is hyperopia?

Hyperopia is a visual impairment caused by the existence of a very short eye bulb, causing the image to form after the retina. Changes in lens and cornea shape can also cause this problem.

What causes

The hyperopic person has blurred (unclear) vision for objects located close to the eye. Far vision is of good quality.

Solution to the problem.

This vision problem is corrected by using converged or convex glasses or contact lenses. Another option, created in recent years, is refractive surgery.

Important:

- The ophthalmologist is the doctor appointed to solve any vision related problem.
