It's a drag being Farsighted and over 40! Most Farsighted (hyperopic) patients see great their first 30-40 years, but then it smacks them in the face. When you are Farsighted and around 40, your eyes have to work very hard to focus. The closer you look the harder it gets. Since hyperopes are not use to wearing glasses or contacts from a young age, this is really a big change for them. The good news is that now some of our happiest patients can see great again, Far and Near after removing Multifocal AOK retainers. Once again they have regained their glasses and contact lens free vision. These retainers have been available for Nearsighted patients for a while, now our Farsighted patients can enjoy the freedom as well.
