DIAGNOSIS OF FARSIGHTEDNESS
If hyperopia is suspected, the EuroEyes ophthalmologist will perform the following examinations:
- Objective refraction determination: Using a special device (refractometer), the doctor determines to what extent the refractive power of the eye deviates from the normal state.
- Subjective refraction determination: This examination is carried out with the help of measuring glasses and provides information about the actual visual acuity. The patient looks through lenses of different strengths and evaluates with which strength he can see best.
During the detailed preliminary examination, it is determined how severe the ametropia is and which procedure the patient is suitable for.
FARSIGHTEDNESS IN CONTRAST TO PRESBYOPIA
A basic distinction is made between presbyopia and farsightedness (hyperopia). While presbyopia is an age-related visual disorder that most of the people get between 45 and 60 and is characterized by the progressive loss of natural flexibility and clarity of the lens. The congenital cause of farsightedness is almost always too short eyeball.
