Long-sightedness, also called hyperopia or hypermetropia, is a common visual disorder. It occurs when the eyeball is too short, or the total power of the eye is not strong enough.
Some of the significant methods of correcting hypermetropia are the surgical methods which include clear lens exchange and laser eye surgery.
Contact us if you have questions on hypermetropia or its available treatment options.
Since the eye does not have enough power or the eyeball is too short, the light rays that enter the eye fall at the back of the retina instead of the retina itself. This causes the resulting vision to be blurry, especially when the object is near. The degree of the effect is dependent on the severity of the condition.
This condition is widespread and can be over at any age. Since the primary causes of the disease are not too strong power of the eye and short eyeballs, it is most common in children. However, children tend to outgrow the condition when their eyeballs grow out and longer.

The following symptoms are associated with long-sightedness:
These symptoms worsen when you perform tasks like reading and other near vision activities. It is very common for the symptoms of hypermetropia to occur when the patient is spending a significant amount of time doing close work like exams. Though visual systems can help this condition in small amounts, it can become problematic if the effort is exerted for an extended period.
Ensure you contact us if you have symptoms of hypermetropia and would like to discuss your treatment options.
An optometrist can diagnose hypermetropia during a routine eye examination. Alongside its diagnosis, some common forms of correcting vision can be prescribed to help relieve the symptoms.
One of the commonly prescribed solutions for long-sightedness is positive lenses. They help increase the power of the eye and reduce the amount of effort your visual system will have to exert to overcome the present condition. They also help reduce the symptoms for patients suffering from the disease.
Several numbers are related to eye prescriptions. The relevant figure in hypermetropia is Sphere. Doctors sometimes abbreviate it as Sph. This number describes the strength of your potential lens, and it is measured in dioptres (D). Positive numbers (e.g. +3.00DS) are used for hypermetropia and negative numbers (-) for myopia or short-sightedness.
The severity of the long-sightedness determines the prescription of the Sphere, which begins from zero. The higher the Sphere prescription, the more severe the hypermetropia.
Spectacles and contact lenses are used for the correction of hypermetropia. Also, eye surgery can be a very effective option for suitable candidates.
If you choose to go for surgical correction for the treatment for hypermetropia, ensure you discuss your choice with your eye surgeon. He will examine you and consider the factors to be aware of (your age, the severity of the prescription, thickness of your cornea, etc.) and decide whether or not there are other present eye conditions. From the findings, he will determine whether you are suitable for eye surgery or not.

I recently had my ICL surgery done. It feels like a miracle being able to see again without glasses. The journey from the initial phone call up until the actual surgery was first class. I highly recommend this place. Thanks very much to everyone in the Optimal Vision clinic!
Really appreciated the friendliness of all staff, and their willingness to go above and beyond to make me feel at ease about the procedure.
Excellent service from start to finish. It worth every penny.
I had LASIK Eye Surgery in Optimal Vision Clinic and I always scared to do this, but it wasn't like that I imagined. I only feel uncomfortable for a day and it all went very well and If I knew it is so easy, I would do it 5 years ago.
I have had to change the power of my glasses frequently! Optimal Vision offered me the best solution with LASIK eye surgery. Now I can read tiny write ups without glasses. Best clinic with the best treatment.
My experience at Optimal Vision has been amazing and had a cataract surgery and now I feel more confident. Staff are very professional; from the front desk all the way to the surgeons. The clinic itself is very modern and well located. It is close to a tube station, coffee shops and restaurants.
My mother had to replace her lens and as she has a heart disease we couldn't just trust to any clinic and do it, after searching and asking many people, we were recommended to this clinic, we went there and the doctor assured us about my mother condition and he was very confident to do this surgery and we trusted him. My mother has done the surgery without any problems and all was good. We can not thank Dr Mani enough.
