6 Signs of Hyperopia You Must Watch Out For

Hyperopia (farsightedness) is a common eye condition where nearby objects appear blurred, but your vision is clearer when looking at things further away. Here’s what you need to know about this condition and how our Calgary optometrists can help ensure your vision always stays clear and comfortable.

In today’s busy world, it can be very easy to neglect the health of your eyes. However, did you know that poor vision can greatly affect a child’s development and an adult’s performance in their professional life?

That’s why it’s so important to schedule routine eye exams with your Calgary optometrist. This will:

  • Lead to earlier diagnosis of any eye conditions, such as farsightedness or more serious diseases such as glaucoma.
  • Ensure immediate treatment and management of vision conditions.
  • Early detection of certain medical conditions, such as diabetes.
  • Enhance your quality of life
  • Allow you to enjoy more comfortable and clear vision

What Does It Mean If You’re Farsighted?

Hyperopia often referred to as farsightedness, is a common refractive error in the eye where distant objects are seen more clearly than those which are closer. This occurs if your eyeball is too short or if your cornea has too little curvature.

In these cases, your eye cannot focus the light correctly as it enters, resulting in difficulty focusing on nearby objects.

6 Signs of Farsightedness

If you are farsighted, your eyes have to work hard to focus on nearby objects. This can lead to eye strain and cause other symptoms such as:

  • Headaches after reading or doing other activities that require focusing on something close up.
  • Eye fatigue
  • Blurry vision when looking at things up close
  • Squinting
  • An aching sensation in your eyes
  • Difficulty maintaining a clear image of nearby objects

Your Qualified Calgary Optometrist Can Determine if You Are Farsighted

To determine whether or not you have hyperopia, a comprehensive eye exam requiring a phoropter is needed. This can effectively assess the condition and determine which prescription is needed.


Get Clear Vision: Treatment of Farsightedness

While you cannot prevent farsightedness, it can be successfully treated. During a consultation, your optometrist can discuss your three main treatment options, which include:

  • Prescription Eyeglasses or Contact Lenses: This is the most common and simplest treatment for farsightedness. Your eye doctor will determine your prescription and give you corrective lenses for clearer vision.
  • Lasik Eye Surgery: This eye surgery uses a laser to change the shape of your cornea, therefore changing the way light rays enter your eye. It can best be used for patients who need their vision corrected due to nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
