What is hyperopia?
Hyperopia, also known as farsightedness, longsightedness or hypermetropia, is a common – and very treatable – vision problem. People with hyperopia have difficulties focusing on objects up-close, but see clearly in the distance. In some cases, faraway objects may also appear blurred, depending on severity.If you have hyperopia, you have probably been prescribed glasses or contacts to help you see. However, with the many safe and effective eye corrective procedures available today, you can say goodbye to glasses and contacts.
What causes hyperopia?
Hyperopia is a vision defect caused by an inperfection in the eye when the eyeball is too short or the cornea is too flat. Light rays enter the eye and do not converge on the retina, so close-up images appear blurry.

iLASIK is blade-free procedure combines the advanced IntraLase Femtosecond laser with the VISX Star S4™ excimer laser to provide patients with a procedure so safe and precise that even NASA has approved it for U.S. Astronauts. This advanced treatment platform can treat a broad range of vision imperfections, including nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.
Custom PRK is for those patients who may not be candidates for iLASIK, Photorefractive Keratectomy, also known as PRK, may be an option. PRK is commonly known as "LASIK without the flap". Instead of making a flap as is commonly done with LASIK, the laser eye treatment is applied to the surface of the cornea, eliminating all potential negative consequences of a LASIK flap.
The Kamra inlay is simple and highly effective and technologically advanced vision correction treatment. The Kamra inlay can even be used on patients who have previously undergone Lasik, PRK or Cataract surgery.
