HYPERMETROPIA

What is the hypermetropia?

The hypermetropia is a refractive error of the eye, where the picture we see is not focused on the retina but BEHIND it. The reason is, that the eye is shorter (axonal hypermetropia) or the refractive power of the eye is too low (refractive hypermetropia).

The symptoms of the hypermetropia

The hypermetropic patients cannot distinguish clearly the objects neither near nor far away. It becomes more obvious, when they become older and mainly by reading. They also have often asthenopic symptoms, which means headache, pain on the forehead or the eyes as well as they get tired quickly.

The treatment of the hypermetropia

The easiest way is to take spectacles or contact lenses. However, the refractive surgery has satisfying results against the hypermetropia. In detail, we can treat it with the laser (Lasik, PRK) or with special intraocular lenses (ICL).
