Farsightedness

Videos

Farsightedness, also known as hyperopia, is the ability to see distant objects clearly while near objects appear blurry. For example, while driving, you can see an exit sign ahead of you, but not your speedometer.  In young people, the natural lens can sometimes correct the focus in farsighted eyes. With aging, the natural lens loses this ability and the vision blurs. This is the reason why many farsighted patients do not become aware of their condition until they enter their 20s or 30s.

“After being diagnosed with cataracts I was referred to West Georgia Eye Care Center for consultation and surgery. The entire experience was wonderful. Everything turned out even better than I’d hoped. I can see exceptionally well after having Restor®; I was practically blind and now I am 20/20. My doctor was so nice and sweet; he explained everything before I had the procedure. I can now do my word search books without glasses or my flashlight.”
