Hyperopia (Farsightedness)

Farsightedness, medically known as hyperopia, is an fault that is caused by a disorder rather than by a disease. Hyperopia is a refractive error, which means that the shape of the eye can not curve light accurately, which results in images being blurred. This condition is most commonly inherited and patients who are hyperopic at a young age often become less hyperopic as adults.

The most common treatment for hyperopia is corrective lenses, such as contacts or eyeglasses. Hyperopia can, in some cases, be corrected through refractive surgery. Your eye care provider at Heinsight Eyecare in Milford, MI, will help you determine the best treatment option for you.

Myopia (Nearsightedness)

Nearsightedness, medically known as myopia, is a very common and serious problem. Approximately 40% of people in the United States are myopic. Worldwide, myopia is found in over a billion people. It is predicted that this number will rise to almost five billion by the year 2050. This is due to various factors including increasing time spent using screens, less time spent outdoors and age.

Myopia is easily diagnosed with a comprehensive eye exam and there are many treatment options. These options include contacts, glasses, LASIK, acrylic corneal implants, photorefractive keratotomy (PRK) and radial keratotomy (RK).
