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.

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 had an absolutely wonderful experience doing Lasik at this clinic. Their entire staff was extremely professional and courteous throughout the entire process.
My surgeon was wonderful, made me feel entirely at ease before and during surgery. Highly recommended.
Laser eye surgery, now glasses free after 23 years! :)
I have always thought about laser, I have worn glasses for 23 years. I was very anxious, worried about the what ifs. I had an appointment with Dr Mani, he explained everything to me and I decided to go ahead with the surgery. It was so fast, Dr Mani did remind me to be patient and I think this is very important. I am now glasses free and hoping this will continue! After care was good, a week after surgery I was concerned and Dr Mani invited me down to check my eyes to be sure all was ok. Thank you
LASIK with Dr. Mani
I had LASIK surgery with Dr. Mani. It was painless, smooth, and everything went well. The staff and Dr. Mani are all friendly and will answer all questions asked. Will recommend 100%! Thank you!
I had a great experience performing my laser eye surgery at Optimal Vision Clinic. All the staffs are very helpful, co-operative and supportive throughout the treatment process. On the first call, they explained the entire procedure in details and gave necessary instructions at every stage. My eye surgeon made me feel comfortable and relaxed before and during the procedure. Aftercare was done properly with a thorough check-up of my eyes. I would like to recommend this clinic to everyone!
Very happy and impressed with the highly professional care and service I’ve received at the Optimal Vision clinic. Dr Mani is so professional, and he explained everything about Laser surgery and answered all my questions. The surgery was quick and almost completely painless. My eyes have healed perfectly and quickly. I would highly recommend this clinic.
My husband had been experiencing discomfort in his left eye since July and was seen by various doctors/consultants even at the Queen Mary’s hospital but no abnormalities were found.
This week Dr. Mani discovered the fault which happened to be Retina detachment with three tears.
Dr. Mani’s preciseness and his perfectionist attitude to attention to details, detected the source of the main issue and saved my husband’s eye. We feel utterly grateful and can not recommend him enough for his excellence.
