Farsightedness Can Affect Your Vision

Hyperopia, also known as farsightedness, is a common vision problem that reverses vision for people afflicted with the condition. What this means is that far objects may seem more clear whereas objects that are closer can appear more blurry than normal. However, it should be noted that people experience this debilitating vision condition differently. These vision problems may not develop until a person's late teens and early adults. Also, people who experience extreme farsightedness may see blurry vision regardless of distance. Eye 1st Vision Center in Sandy Springs, GA has some information for you about farsightedness and how seeking help from an optometrist can help you with your vision.

How Does It Develop?

Farsightedness has a tendency to develop in particular eyes that focus images behind the retina. Normally, eyeballs focus images in front of the retina. Focusing behind the retina will create a blurry vision and makes it difficult to see well in certain situations. This has a tendency to happen if the eyeball is too short. This prevents light from focusing on the retina which would normally allow the person to see normally. Farsightedness can also develop if the cornea or lens are developed abnormally similar to astigmatism. 

Symptoms

Here are some various symptoms of farsightedness and how to look out for them.

  • Recurring headaches.
  • A strain on your eyes.
  • Constant squinting
  • Blurry vision. Far objects may become more clear whereas closer objects are harder to focus on.

An optometry specialist will be able to help you diagnose whether or not you have farsightedness. Contact your local eye doctor to determine the best treatment for you.

Treatment

Fortunately, there are various methods available that can help an individual correct their vision. An optometrist will be able to provide this service for you if you are experiencing the symptoms listed above.

  • Eyeglasses. One of the simplest methods in optometry to fix this vision problem would be to provide eyeglasses. Your eye doctor will be able to determine the best pair for you after receiving an eye exam.
  • Contact lenses. This method is more convenient for people who do not wish to wear glasses. Contact lenses can be shaped and fit for your eyes after an eye exam.
  • Refractive surgery. This option will permanently fix farsightedness for you. Your optometrist will use this type of surgery to change the shape of the cornea. This will improve your eye's ability to reflect incoming light and correct your vision.
