HYPEROPIA

WHAT IS THE HYPEROPIA?

The hyperopia is a refractive error characterized by a shorter anterior-posterior axis of the eye.

In patients with hyperopia, the image of the object (located towards infinity) is located behind the retina. If the eye has enough accommodative power, the image can be focused on the retina.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF HYPEROPIA?

Patients with hyperopia make a permanent accommodation effort to see clearly at distance and at near .

Children and young people with low hyperopia manage to compensate by accommodation the convergence deficit (“make a greater visual effort” to see clearly).

In the case of medium or high hyperopia, the patient cannot see clearly at distance or when reading.

HOW TO TREAT HYPEROPIA?

The hyperopia correction is performed based on the age, hyperopia value, and the objective and subjective disorders.

In the case of a hyperopic patients aged of up to 20, the treatment consists of air correction (glasses / convex (+) spherical lenses) or contact lenses.

In the case of patients aged from 20 to 40 years old, with dioptres of up to +5Dsf, the treatment may consist of iLASIK refractive surgery.

In the case of patients aged from 20 to 40 years old, with dioptres greater than +5 + 6Dsf, the treatment may consist of implanting an artificial lens (phakic implant) in the anterior chamber.

In the case of patients over 40-45, the treatment is customized (iLASIK, lens extraction with multifocal lens implant, multifocal contact lenses).
