How Does Laser Eye Surgery Help Hyperopia?
Mr Glenn Carp – “In long-sighted patients, essentially the eyes focus so far into the infinity that both their distance and often their reading is both impaired. So laser eye surgery for a long-sighted or hyperopic patient can correct both their distance vision as well as improving some of the reading. If you are below the age of 45 it will restore pretty much all the reading. If you are over the age of 45, you still have the affects of presbyopia to contend with. So while the distance can be improved perhaps blended vision will tackle the residual reading as well.”

Many hyperopic patients will have found that their eyesight has deteriorated slowly over time, this is quite normal, but it can be frustrating for a hyperopic individual who needed no correction when young to find they need glasses to read and perform close work.
