What is Hyperopia?

Good vision is an integral factor in someone's general quality of life. It can impact daily activities, professional functions, hobbies, and even working out. Hyperopia, often referred to as farsightedness, is among the most frequently treated types of vision impairments. About a fourth of the people in our country are impacted by hyperopia. It is the impaired ability to see objects at less than arm's distance, such as words or photographs. Hobbies like reading and even things like vacuuming can be very difficult. As with nearsightedness, the severity of farsightedness can vary from mild to significant and will often lead to other frustrating discomfort that can impact you daily. Fortunately, we have many possible ways to handle your farsightedness.

At Advanced Vision & Achievement Center, our experienced team can examine you for farsightedness and detail all of your possible treatment methods. Schedule your visit to our Phoenix, AZ practice for a thorough eye exam with medical director Dr. Neha Amin LaCorte or Dr. Mary Hardy, and be one step closer to getting sharper vision.

What are the Symptoms of hyperopia?

Those with hyperopia may not even know it until their close-up vision begins to be hazy. The inability to focus on objects near the eyes is typically the most dominant sign of being farsighted. However, hyperopia that isn’t affecting vision yet or has been left untreated does frequently cause eye fatigue, also known as asthenopia. The consistent strain on the eyes that comes from working on certain tasks, such as studying, typing, or using the computer, can cause headaches, dry and sore eyes, and tension in the upper body. Individuals who currently use corrective lenses for hyperopia but are still having these symptoms should have an eye exam to find out if their prescription needs to be changed.

I love this place so much. I absolutely would recommend this place to anyone with vision care needs. Dr Hardy is collaborative and attentive to your needs. Clear communication is something you don't get at other vision care places but Dr Hardy is on it. They don't overprice contact lenses either! They've even helped me out when I received a defective lens. I cannot recommend Dr Hardy or the staff here enough. 11/10 service, affordability and care if I could rate it that way.

I recently completed a series of vision therapy sessions with Advanced vision and achievement center. Thelma is my mentor for the eye exercises. From the outset, Thelma's friendliness and approachability set a comforting tone for the entire therapy process. Thelma's dedication to her work is evident in her meticulous attention to detail and her genuine concern for her patients' progress. She was incredibly supportive throughout the sessions, always available to assist and encourage me with each exercise. The individualized care and guidance provided by Thelma have made a significant difference in my vision. I have noticed a remarkable improvement in the coordination of my eyes, which has positively impacted my daily life. Dr. Forest and Thelma's contribution to my vision health has been invaluable, and I highly recommend their services to anyone considering vision therapy. Thank you for your exceptional care and for making such a positive difference in my life."

Hello, I'm very grateful for the care I've received from Dr. Amin and her staff. My vision has improved after a debilitating accident one year ago. Dr. Amin's expertise and guidance have helped me to make better progress than I imaged. It's been a long road to recovery, but I couldn't have done it without the team at Advanced Vision.
