FARSIGHTEDNESS - AND WHAT WE CAN DO ABOUT IT

You want to see sharp again in the distance – without glasses and contact lenses? We offer different treatment options for the correction of farsightedness.

WHICH METHOD IS THE RIGHT ONE FOR ME WITH FARSIGHTEDNESS?

Prior to treatment, a thorough examination and consultation will always take place in order to determine whether or not the patient is a suitable candidate for laser eye treatment. Safety and diagnostics are our absolute priorities. If the examination reveals that you aren't a suitable candidate, you will be offered another solution to correct your refractive error.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN NORMAL VISION AND FARSIGHTEDNESS

Normal Vision

Good vision requires a sharp image being produced on the retina at the back of the eye. The optical system (cornea, crystalline lens and vitreous body) of a normal eye diverts light rays in a way that they land exactly in focus at the point of best vision on the retina, the so-called makula. This diversion of light rays is called refraction. The total refractive power is expressed in diopters (D). Total refractive power is determined on the basis of the different parts of the optical system. When the total refraction is zero diopters, objects will be depicted sharply on the retina. The optical correction of farsightedness increases the refractive power of the optical system, moving the focal point forwards onto the retina.

Farsightedness

The farsighted eye is usually too short. Another, rarer cause of farsightedness is that the refractive power of the cornea and lens is too weak. Farsightedness in a farsighted eye, the incoming light rays are refracted in a way that the focal point is located behind the retina. Distant objects may still be seen clearly, because the lens adjusts. However, near objects generally appear blurry.
