    The good news about hyperopia is that there are many effective treatments available to correct the problem. Prescription eyeglasses and/or contact lenses are some of the most common; however, refractive eye surgery procedures such as All Laser LASIK and PRK can dramatically improve vision while reducing the need for corrective eyewear. Hyperopia or farsightedness, occurs when light entering the eye focuses behind the retina, instead of directly on it. This is caused by a cornea that is flatter, or an eye that is shorter, than a normal eye. Farsighted people usually have trouble seeing up close, but may also have difficulty seeing far away as .
