Farsightedness (hyperopia) is a common vision condition in which you can see objects in the distance clearly, but objects nearby are blurry. If you're farsighted, your eye is probably too short from front to back, causing light rays to be focused behind rather than on the back of your eye (retina).

Treatment 

The goal of treating farsightedness is to address the uneven curvature of the cornea or lens that's causing your blurred vision. Treatments include wearing corrective lenses and undergoing refractive surgery.

Corrective lenses
Wearing corrective lenses treats farsightedness by counteracting the uneven curvature of your cornea. Types of corrective lenses include:

  • Contact lenses. A wide variety of contact lenses are available — hard, soft, extended wear, disposable, rigid gas-permeable (RGP) and bifocal. Ask your eye doctor about their pros and cons and what might be best for you.

  • Eyeglasses. An alternative to contact lenses is eyeglasses. Like contact lenses, the variety of eyeglasses is wide.

Refractive surgery
This treatment corrects farsightedness by reshaping the curvature of your cornea. Refractive surgery methods include:

  • LASIK surgery. Laser-assisted in-situ keratolmileusis (LASIK) is a procedure in which an ophthalmologist uses an instrument called a keratome to make a thin, circular hinged cut into your cornea. Your eye surgeon then uses an excimer laser to remove layers from the center of your cornea to steepen its domed shape. An excimer laser differs from other lasers in that it doesn't produce heat.

  • Laser-assisted subepithelial keratectomy (LASEK) and photorefractive keratectomy (PRK). Instead of sculpting the inner layers of your cornea, your eye surgeon uses an excimer laser to reshape the outer layers. After removing the thin, protective layer of your cornea (epithelium), your surgeon steepens the curvature of your cornea. The epithelium grows back and conforms to the new shape of your cornea.
