LASIK for Farsightedness (Hyperopia)
More than three million people a year are diagnosed with Hyperopia, or farsightedness, in the United States. If you are one of them, you’re not alone. This common vision condition is easy to treat with eyeglasses or contacts—but sometimes those don’t fit into your lifestyle. In that case, LASIK might be right for you. At Michigan Eye Institute, our team of expertly trained physicians can help you decide the best treatment plan for you and your vision.
Schedule a complimentary LASIK consultation to begin your clearer vision journey today.
What Is Hyperopia?
Hyperopia, or farsightedness, is a vision condition that causes objects close to you to appear blurry. For those with farsightedness, the light that enters the eye focuses behind the retina instead of on the retina itself.
Common symptoms of farsightedness:
- Objects close to you are blurry
- Eye strains
- Or fatigue after doing tasks like reading, using a mobile phone, or computer
If you’re experiencing these symptoms, there’s no need to struggle. Schedule a routine eye exam with our expertly-trained optometrists. We’ll work with you to determine what treatment option is best for you.
How Can LASIK Correct Farsightedness?
Our doctors are highly skilled and strive to correct your farsightedness and eliminate your reliance on glasses or contacts. Our cutting-edge computer-controlled laser technology removes tissue from the cornea to make it steeper. This makes light focus correctly on the retina.

At MEI, we strive to help you achieve results that are best for you. We start with a complimentary LASIK consultation where we thoroughly evaluate your eyes. We’ll walk you through your results and go over your treatment options to find the one best suited to you.
