Hyperopia Treatment

Vision ailments put a damper on your daily routine. Hyperopia, a vision disorder that causes nearby items to appear blurred, is particularly problematic for daily duties like driving, reading, or working on a PC. If you’ve blurred vision, assistance is just an email or phone call away. Contact Fountain Valley Optometry to discuss treatment options for hyperopia.



Hyperopia, aka farsightedness, is a condition where one has difficulties seeing nearby items but can see distant objects.


A refractive error in your eye causes hyperopia. Normally, the cornea and lens bend light evenly for a clear vision. But with hyperopia, the cornea or lens is insufficiently curved or out of place, causing blurry vision. Hyperopia is commonly inherited. But it isn’t currently proven why some families suffer from hyperopia and others don’t.


Some of the symptoms of farsightedness include:

  • Fatigue
  • Eyestrain
  • Headaches
  • Squinting
  • Difficulty focusing on items
  • A burning or aching feeling around the eyes

At Fountain Valley Optometry in Fountain Valley, CA, our optometrist can help you determine if you have farsightedness and help you choose the best treatment options. We offer the latest eye diagnostics and treatment services.

How Our Eye Doctor Treats Farsightedness

Our optician conducts a comprehensive eye checkup to reveal whether you suffer from hyperopia. Our eye doctor will also assess your overall eye health. Commonly they dilate the pupils using medicated drops. After that, they complete the vision checkup by looking through several lenses. This refractive process can diagnose other visual problems like presbyopia, astigmatism, or nearsightedness. We recommend you undergo a vision checkup regularly. Our eye doctor tailors a personalized treatment plan for every hyperopia patient. Treatment solutions include:

  • Refractive surgery like LASIK to help reshape your cornea
  • Contact lenses to help broaden the visual sphere and focus on nearby items
  • Prescription eyeglasses are the safest and easiest solution
