Farsightedness is a common vision problem that affects about a quarter of the population. People with farsightedness can see objects in the distance very well, but they have difficulty focusing on objects that are close. This condition is sometimes called “hypermetropia” instead of hypermetropia. Hypermetropia is not a disease, but a defect in refracting light that comes to the eye. Hypermetropia is caused by the diameter of the eyeball being smaller than normal, the cornea is too flat, or the lens of the eye is not thick enough.

  • The problem of focusing on nearby objects
  • Headache
  • Blurred vision
  • Eyestrain
  • Frequent winking
  • Don’t squint
  • Pain or burning in the eye
  • Feeling eye pain or headache when performing long-term close-range tasks such as reading, writing, using a computer, drawing


In the treatment of hypermetropia in Turkey, the goal is to reduce the light to the right place on the retina, that is, to the front. Convex lenses with thin edges are used for this purpose. In the treatment of hypermetropia, there are glasses, contact lenses, or surgical operations.


The most commonly used and preferred form of treatment. Glasses are the most commonly preferred lenses for correcting hypermetropia defects. In addition, as the degree of hyperopia increases, the glass of glasses will thicken, image quality distortion may occur.


Contact lenses cover the eye to direct. If you pay attention to the rules of hygiene when using it, it usually does not cause problems.

Surgical operations

Although operations performed for crushing defects are more preferred in myopia, these operations can also be performed in mild and moderate hypermetropia.
