Hypermetropy: treatments

The treatment of hyperopia can consist of different correction techniques.

- Glasses.

The most classic treatment is wearing glasses. Farsighted people were wearing thick, heavy glasses, which were getting bigger. Now, new technologies make it possible to make much thinner, lighter glasses.

Each type of glass has its advantages and disadvantages: the mineral glasses, glass, which darken in the light are heavy, thick, break and scratch with difficulty. The organic glasses are solid, lightweight plastic, but they scratch easily. The composite lenses that combine the two techniques are rather offered to weak hyperopia.

- Contact lenses.

They are a good solution to hyperopia. All people who need to have an eye patch can not wear contact lenses: some are allergic to it, others are prone to infections and some have the cornea too sensitive. Their maintenance must be strict. You must comply with the instructions for use, use only the products adapted to each lens.

- Surgical treatment.

The cornea is partly responsible for the dioptric power. In the context of hyperopia, it is not bulging enough. Refractive surgery of the cornea is a surgical treatment that helps to find the right curvature of the cornea. It consists of the removal of a small thickness of the cornea. This surgery is done under local anesthesia. The intervention is very fast. Healing and analgesic drops are prescribed after surgery.

What must be remembered: hyperopia is the opposite of myopia. Because of a disturbance of accommodation, the patient sees poorly and normally from a distance. When the defect of vision is disabling, it is necessary to correct the disorder by glasses or lenses. Refractive surgery is also an effective treatment.
