Hypermetropia

Hypermetropia

Hypermetropic patients may see distant objects reasonably clearly, but have increasing difficulty with near objects. The opposite of myopia, hypermetropia occurs due to a cornea that is relatively flat, causing light to focus behind the retina.

Treatment for Hypermetropia

Hypermetropia is most often corrected with glasses or contact lenses, but laser refractive surgery provides you with an alternative. The two most common laser treatments for hypermetropia we offer at Hunter Laser Vision are LASIK and Trans PRK. Both procedures are safe and highly effective. You will need a consultation to determine whether these procedures are right for you. This will depend on a number of factors including your prescription, eye health, age and lifestyle. If you aren’t eligible for LASIK or Trans PRK you may be suitable for one of our intraocular lens-based procedures.
