Hypermetropia

A hypermetropic person does not see clearly from near and from far. It is at the expense of a lot of effort and fatigue that he manages to see from far. The eye is simply not powerful enough. It is said to be "too short": the image is formed behind the retina.

First symptoms

Do you experience ocular fatigue and headaches? Permanent effort of accommodation may be the cause of these symptoms. They are more frequent in the evening and after work.

Light hypermetropia often remains unsuspected up to 35/40 years because the eye adapts in order to restore a clear image. When this defect is significant, it is detectable very early in children. It is often accompanied by a strabism which must be corrected quickly.

Correction

Hypermetropia is corrected thanks to convergent (convex) lenses, which bring back the image on the retina. Accommodation thus is relieved so that one may avoid fatigue and headaches.

Lenses for hypermetropic people are thicker in the centre than on the edge. The difference in thickness is more significant for stronger hypermetropia.

Contact lenses

Progress made in contact lenses makes it possible to consider the providing the same comfort to all hypermetropic just like for myopic people.

All the types of lenses are available: soft aqueous lenses or hard lenses.
