Symptoms of hyperopia:
- Blurry close vision
- Occasionally, blurry distance vision
Causes of hyperopia:
Many people are not diagnosed with hyperopia without a complete eye exam. School screenings typically do not detect this condition because they test only for distance vision. The doctors at Vold Vision can conduct a refractive evaluation to determine whether your eyes focus light rays exactly on the retina at distance and near. A visual acuity test will determine your ability to see sharply and clearly at all distances. Our doctors will also check your eye coordination and muscle control, as well as your eyes’ ability to change focus. All of these are important factors in how your eyes see.
Treatment of hyperopia:
Glasses and contact lenses are used by many for the temporary treatment of hyperopia. However, there are a number of vision correction procedures that Dr. Vold can perform that can surgically reduce or eliminate hyperopia.
