Far-sightedness (hyperopia) is a visual impairment when a person is unable to see clearly both close and remote objects. Far-sightedness is quite common in children.

The problem of far-sightedness can be successfully treated by refractive surgery. It was founded by S.N. Fyodorov. Surgery techniques, tools and special microsurgery instruments are constantly developed and improved. Software-based precise calculations can predict surgery outcomes on a case by case basis. This gives far-sighted patients the possibility to see the world with their own eyes.

Only a specialist can determine the degree of your far-sightedness and choose the most suitable treatment method.


Doctors indicate the following methods for treating far-sightedness:

  • prevention and treatment of hyperopia complications such as strabismus, binocular function disorders, amblyopia;
  • correction of the refraction of a far-sighted eye and getting rid of eyeglasses and contact lenses.

Specialist of the Eye Microsurgery MNTK successfully use various methods to correct far-sightedness.

Far-sightedness of up to 6.0 diopters is treated with personalized FemtoLASIK, which is the state of the art in the surgery of hyperopia.

FemtoLASIK surgeries are carried out on patients aged 12 to 60 years suffering from hyperopia of 1.0 to 6.0 diopters. FemtoLASIK is indicated for hyperopia on a case-by-case basis.

FemtoLASIK Total time needed for treatment of the both eyes: 5-7 days (preoperative examination 1-2 days, surgery on two eyes on the 2nd or 3rd day, postoperative follow up – 1-2 days, postoperative follow up – 3-4 days)

The above surgeries are non-cutting, as a surgeon’s blade does not penetrate into the eye cavity. Cutting surgeries are performed only to correct far-sightedness of above 6.0 diopters, i.e. a soft miniature lens is placed in front of the eye lens. It enhances the insufficient refraction of a far-sighted eye. It imitates “incraocular glasses”. This surgery is called hyperphakia. If, in addition to far-sightedness, you have eye lens opacity or the eye lens is too large, you can be offered a combined surgery – hyperopic artiphakia, when the eye lens is removed through a small hole and replaced by an artificial one, more powerful.

These surgeries are made on patients aged 18 and older, suffering from hyperopia of 6.0 or more diopters. The visual acuity after correction must be at least 0.1.

Hyperartiphakiaand hyperphakia Total time needed for treatment of the both eyes with bilateral far-sightedness– 10-14 days (preoperative examination 2 days, surgery on one eye on the 3rd day, postoperative follow up – 4 days, surgery of the other eye on the 5th day, postoperative follow up – 4 days)

The purpose of these refractive surgeries is to enhance refraction of a far-sighted eye. Each surgery has its own indications and contraindications. The doctor will choose the optimal surgery for your eyes taking into account all examination results. Far-sightedness can be complicated with amblyopia, binocular vision disorders or strabismus. Comprehensive treatment that includes the impact on various segments of the visual system – from the retina to the cerebral cortex – must be started as early as possible to increase the visual acuity and improve binocular functions.

The treatment includes various types stimulation: laser, magnetic; exercises on the "Amblyocore” system, on computers with unique software, as well as a number of other innovative devices.

Having access to all modern laser technologies, specialists of the laser surgery department of the Eye Microsurgery MNTK can treat far-sightedness. High qualification of surgeons and the use of modern technologies allow achieving brilliant results in the treatment of any patients suffering from this ailment.
