Eye Conditions That We Don't Treat

(Long-sightedness or Farsightedness)

Is a refractive error in which near objects appear out of focus while distant objects are clear. This occurs when the eyeball is too short or the cornea is too flat to focus light onto the retina. Incoming light is focussed behind the retina.

Common Symptoms of hyperopia include eye strain, fatigue, headaches, aching or burning eyes after close work.

Low hyperopes usually do not require spectacles until their late thirties, the degree of hyperopia then tends to increase and distance vision may then become blurred as well.

High amounts of hyperopia causes vision to be blurred both up close and in the distance. Spectacles are usually worn at all times.

Laser Surgery is not recommended for the treatment of hyperopia. Refractive Lens Exchange is a more permanent and effective alternative.


Presbyopia is an age-related process which causes blurred near vision. The lens of the eye gradually becomes harder and less elastic, making it thicker and less flexible.

This gradual loss of focussing ability usually occurs between 40-50 years of age and progressively increases until 60-70 years of age.

People who require reading glasses only and who have good distance vision are not suitable candidates for Laser Surgery. Refractive Lens Exchange is a more permanent and effective alternative.
