For some people, contact lenses are a good option for hypermetropia treatment, especially if they experience high levels of farsightedness. The main benefits of contact lenses are that they can be worn during sports and that they are virtually invisible. There are several options when it comes to contact lenses. Based on your ocular health and your personal preferences, an optometrist will give you advice tailored to your needs. Some examples of different contact lenses are daily disposable or reusable lenses. The latter can be worn for either two weeks or a month (depending on the type), but require daily cleaning of the lenses.
Contact lenses can also be worn by children, depending on their age and maturity. It is important for contact lens wearers to always have at least one pair of glasses.
Laser surgery for hypermetropia treatment
Another optional treatment is laser surgery although it is not a hypermetropia cure. As with any procedure, recovery times vary, and it may not be suitable for everyone. Common types of laser surgery include PRK, LASIK and LASEK, all of which can be effective for long-sightedness.
