What is Hyperopia?

Hyperopia is a common refractive error that affects the eye's ability to focus on nearby objects. Unlike myopia (nearsightedness), where distant objects are blurry, individuals with hyperopia struggle with clear vision up close. This occurs when the eyeball is too short or the cornea has too little curvature, causing light to focus behind the retina instead of directly on it.

Causes of Hyperopia:

  • Eyeball Shape: Hyperopia is often associated with an eyeball that is too short, preventing light from focusing directly on the retina.

  • Genetic Factors: A family history of hyperopia may increase the likelihood of developing this refractive error.

Symptoms of Hyperopia:

Common signs of hyperopia include:

  • Blurred vision when reading or doing close-up tasks.
  • Eye strain, discomfort, or headaches, particularly after prolonged near work.
  • Difficulty focusing on close objects.


Dr. Wang employs advanced diagnostic tools to accurately assess hyperopia during comprehensive eye exams. These exams include measuring the refractive error and assessing the overall health of your eyes.

Treatment Options:

Our personalized approach to hyperopia management includes:

  • Eyeglasses: Prescription glasses with convex lenses help to focus light directly on the retina, providing clear vision for close-up tasks.

  • Contact Lenses: Specially designed contact lenses are available for those who prefer an alternative to glasses.

  • Refractive Surgery: In some cases, refractive surgeries like LASIK may be recommended to reshape the cornea and correct hyperopia permanently.

At Modern Eyes Optometry, we are dedicated to improving your vision and enhancing your quality of life. Dr. Wang and our professional team are here to guide you through the process, ensuring you receive the best care for your hyperopia.
