HYPEROPIA

WHEN YOU CAN SEE CLEARER IN THE DISTANCE THAN AT NEAR

WHAT IS HYPEROPIA

Hyperopia, also called ‘being long-sighted’ is caused when the eye is either shorter than normal or when the cornea becomes a little too flat. It is also caused by the ageing process and many patients will notice this deterioration in their vision over time.

When you suffer from hyperopia, the typical symptoms you notice will be any of the following:

  • Blurred vision when reading
  • Headaches after reading for a long time 
  • Eyestrain when on the computer through the day
  • Feeling that you can’t focus on the TV/subtitles at the end of a long day
  • Children may complain of getting headaches and feeling tied

HOW CAN HYPEROPIA BE TREATED?

  • Having a Detailed Eye Test: There can be subtle hyperopa causing your symptoms. You may only have a small prescription however this could be causing you significant issues. Diagnosing hyperopia all starts with having a detailed eye test. At Abra & Co. Opticians, our Optometrists are trained to look for subtle signs of Hyperopia that are not typically visible. We have our own refraction techniques designed to help relax the eyes totally so we’re able to measure your full prescription.
  • Prescription Glasses: Hyperopia is corrected most commonly with prescription glasses. Depending on the size of the prescription you may need spherical single vision lenses, aspheric single vision lenses, or digitally surfaced single vision lenses to compeltely reduce the aberrations caused by such prescriptions. Depending on what is causing your symptoms, you may also benefit from specific lens coatings such as Blue Light filters or honeycomb mesh coatings that eliminate migraines. 
  • Contact Lenses: Hyperopia is easily corrected by contact lenses too. We will cover all your options with you and explain what we think is the best option for you.
 

Fortunately, our Optometrists are skilled at managing all types of hyperopia including that caused by accommodation issues. 

HOW CAN WE HELP YOU IF YOU HAVE HYPEROPIA?

At Abra & Co. Opticians, we understand your eyes are precious. If you have hyperopia firstly our Optometrists will explain what your unique prescription means and what tasks we would encourage you to wear your glasses for. If this is your first spectacle prescription, then we will make some unique adjustments to your vision to make sure that you end up with vision that is natural and clear when you wear your glasses.

The next step is to select the right lenses to match your prescription needs. This means our expert dispensers will recommend the lens that gives you the most natural vision and widest field of vision possible. If any coatings are required, they will be explained and the option left to you to decide. As you can see there are quite a few steps in this process. Spectacles are a medical device and therefore must be dispensed as such.

Your vision is precious so we go through every step in a detailed, methodical way to give you the best vision possible that helps protect your sight.
