What is Hyperopia?
Hyperopia, or farsightedness, occurs when light rays entering the eye do not converge enough to come to a focal point on the retina. This may happen because the eyeball of a farsighted person is shorter than normal and/or the cornea is flatter than normal. Many children are born with hyperopia, and some “outgrow” it as the eyeball lengthens with normal growth. Farsightedness is a fairly common vision problem. Initially, people with hyperopia can see distant objects very well, but have difficulty seeing objects up close. Later in life, their distance vision deteriorates as the lens loses its ability to accommodate. Often this condition is not detected early in life because the young eye is able to compensate by altering the internal lens of the eye.
To correct hyperopia, we need to provide lenses that will assist the eye to converge light more so the light comes to a point on the retina rather than behind the retina.
People with hyperopia typically experience symptoms such as difficulty fatigue, burning eyes, irritability, eye aches or headaches after working at a desk or on other close tasks. If you experience these symptoms, a comprehensive eye examination can determine if you have hyperopia.
Professional and clinically on target. My wife finally has received excellent care after being examined at Rosin. Highly recommend. Thank you.
I loved my visit here. I had a great doctor and I highly recommend her. She made the visit easy and smooth but was very detailed in her work. She was very open to my suggestions and gave me lots of options as far as lenses and gave me advice on how to improve my eyesight. The best visit with an Optometrist that I have ever had!
