Laser Eye Surgery for Long Sightedness

04 Jan 2013

Hyperopia (long-sightedness) happens when the eye is shorter than normal, so the light rays entering the eye end up focused behind the retina.
 
This causes the image on the retina to be blurred, so although distant objects may appear fairly clear, objects that are close to you appear fuzzy and indistinct.
 

Long-Sightedness in Adults

 
Most children are actually long-sighted, but their young eyes have the ability to bend light rays to place them directly on the retina so they don’t have blurring. As adults, however, we experience Hyperopia differently-in fact when people have significant Hyperopia, it can blur your vision for objects at any distance, near or far.
 
Close tasks like reading prove problematic for those with long-sightedness and people often experience eye strain and headaches. You may even find yourself squinting.
 

Correct Long-Sightedness at Optilase Eye Clinic

 
As Hyperopia is another member of the group of eye conditions where focusing is the problem, it can be corrected. Optilase Laser Eye Clinics can gently reshape the cornea to fix the focusing issue, so your corrected eye places the light rays on the retina without any blurring.
 
Optilase have perfected the technique of using cool beam laser, called ‘Excimer’, to gently reshape the cornea. The whole procedure only takes a few minutes to complete, and the results can be life-changing, eliminating the need for corrective eyewear.
