Hipermetropía

Treatments & Surgery

It is a refractive error, which means that the eye does not bend or refract light properly to a single focus to see images clearly. In hyperopia, distant objects look somewhat clear, but close objects appear more blurred.


People experience hyperopia differently. Some people may not notice any problems with their vision, especially when they are young. For people with significant hyperopia, vision can be blurry for objects at any distance, near or far. It is an eye focusing disorder, not an eye disease.

Hipermetropía

Hipermetropía

Hyperopia, or farsightedness, is a common vision problem, affecting about a fourth of the population.

People with hyperopia can see distant objects very well, but have difficulty focusing on objects that are up close.

The condition is sometimes referred to as “hypermetropia” rather than hyperopia.

Like myopia or nearsightedness, farsightedness is usually inherited. Most children are farsighted, yet they do not experience blurry vision. With focusing (accommodation), children’s eyes are able to bend the light rays and place them directly on the retina. As long as the farsightedness is not too severe, hyperopic children will have clear vision for seeing objects at a distance and up close. As the eye grows and becomes longer, hyperopia lessens.
