What is Hyperopia?
What you need to know about long-sightedness
Long-sightedness, also known in the medical world as hyperopia, is a common condition that affects your ability to focus on objects up close, while objects in the distance remain clear and in focus.
Blurry near-vision occurs when the length of the eyeball is shorter than normal, causing the light coming into your eyes to focus behind, instead of exactly on your retina. Think of a camera lens that focuses light onto a piece of film. If the light focused on the wrong spot, the image would be out of focus.
While our eyes can compensate for a little bit of long-sightedness by changing the shape of the lens, significant long-sightedness can cause blurry vision, headaches and tired, achy eyes.
Can long-sightedness be corrected?
You can breathe a sigh of relief because long-sightedness is perfectly normal and easily corrected. What’s more, you have the choice of various types of prescription eyewear to help you see clearly.
Depending on your lifestyle, eyewear prescription and the way you use your eyes, you have access to a huge range of frames, contact lenses, prescription sunglasses and more. All of this will help bring your near-vision into focus and allow you to live your life to the fullest. Laser eye surgery is also an option pending eligibility.
See the world more clearly
Helping you see the world more clearly is what gets our optometrists up in the morning.
If you find yourself squinting to see clearly, get strained eyes or have headaches after reading or computer use, it’s time to book an appointment with one of our independently-owned optometrists.
Being independent gives our optometrists the time to thoroughly examine your eyes, as well as the freedom to find the right solution for your eyes from a wide range of products.
Personalised eyecare is essential for maintaining optimal vision, detecting eye conditions early, and promoting overall well-being. By tailoring examinations, prescriptions, lenses, and lifestyle recommendations to each individual, we can provide the highest standard of care.
