Laser surgery has become increasingly popular as an alternative method of treating pressure.
New revolutionary device for the treatment of dry eyes due to Blepharitis/Meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD), the E-Eye IPL machine.
Hyperopia is a common vision condition in which you can see distant objects clearly, but objects nearby may be blurry.
The degree of your farsightedness influences your focusing ability. People with severe farsightedness may struggle to see objects at distance and near, while those with mild farsightedness may be able to clearly see objects in the distance but struggle with anything closer.
Farsightedness can be present from birth and tends to run in families.
Symptoms may include:
Anatomy of the eye
Your eye has two parts that focus images:
In a normally shaped eye, each of these focusing elements has a perfectly smooth curvature. A cornea and lens with such curvature bend (refract) all incoming light to make a sharply focused image directly on the retina, at the back of your eye.
A refractive error
If your cornea or lens isn't evenly and smoothly curved, light rays aren't refracted properly, and you have a refractive error.
Farsightedness occurs when your eyeball is shorter than normal or your cornea is curved too little. Instead of being focused precisely on your retina, light is focused behind your retina
Hyperopia can be associated with several problems, such as:
If your degree of farsightedness is pronounced enough that you can't perform a task as well as you wish, or if your quality of vision detracts from your enjoyment of activities, you should organise an eye examination.

For most people 2020 was a terrible year, nothing but Covid and lockdowns, for me it was the year I got my eyesight back. I've been wearing reading glasses since I was 7 years old. The optic nerve in my right eye never really developed so I had to rely on my left eye to provide me with adequate sight, with a prescription in my right eye to help balance it. This continued right through my childhood, adolescence, then through adulthood until my 40's. At that stage, my left eye had also began to fail, so, "call it vanity", I decided to opt for laser surgery. This unfortunately only lead to further complications and so was back to wearing glasses, 18 months after the treatment, with an eye prescription worse than ever. I knew by my early 50's my eyesight was in a serious state. Even with glasses everything was a blur and going in the wrong direction. I decided to seek further help, so for 3 years I visited eye specialists in Cork and Dublin hoping for a solution. Nobody wanted to know me after my failed eye operations and poor sight, except one man, MR Behrooz Golchin, a man I credit for saving my eyesight. Within 3 months I got synthetic lenses for both eyes. 12 months later I am still in disbelief of what he was able to do to correct my eyesight. Thank you Mr Golchin
