Human body is undoubtedly an unparalleled creation of nature. Gauged through its mechanism and functions, human body can easily be called a natural machine, which is composed of various parts. And in these, pair of eyes is that beautiful part that helps human to see the amazing world.
While talking about eyes, there are various types of eye disorders that can affect vision and can cause a lot of discomfort. Hypermetropia is one of the major eye disorders, which takes toll on individual’s ability to see closer objects. One can see objects at a greater distance easily but is not able to focus closer objects.
Hypermetropia, also called long-sightedness can occur owing to a lot of reasons. Genetics, age factor, improper curve of cornea, short eyeball and also medical conditions like diabetes could affect the eye’s vision. When long-sightedness occurs in adults after 40 years of age, this is usually termed as Presbyopia. But when, it is congenital in children, the problem withers away slowly as the child ages. For this, regular eye checkup, is recommended for children, so as to cure the disorder completely and avoid future complications.
Long-sightedness can be easily diagnosed and the problem is well addressed, giving patients a lot of relief. Hypermetropia treatment is usually simple and easy that allows the use of lenses, either through glasses or through contact lenses. Other treatments include surgical methods, but these are generally not recommended and suitable for everyone. The secondary serious complications of this eye disorder are observed rarely in adults, but the vision gets weaker as adults age. However, this can be well treated though lenses. While in children, it can sometimes lead to further complications namely, Strabismus (also called squinted eyes) and Amblyopia (also known as lazy eyes). In strabismus, both the eyes are differently aligned and hence focus on different things at the same time. While in Amblyopia, only one of the two eyes is able to focus on objects, while other becoming dormant or lazy. As a result of this, the lazy eye could get permanently blind, if the treatment is not started well in time. Hence, timely treatment and proper management is highly recommended to correct the long-sightedness disorder.
While talking about the treatment for long-sightedness, the ciliary muscles present in our eyes plays the vital role. It is these muscles that are actually responsible to control the eye lens. Hence, strengthening of ciliary muscles makes basis for basis for a good hypermetropia treatment. Strengthening ciliary muscles and improving the flexibility of the lenses helps restore the normality of eye functioning and hence giving much relief to the patient.
Hypermetropia treatment in India is also done on the similar lines. Clinics such as Sanjeevan, uses the same technique to increase the axial length of eye ball that as a result betters the distance between eye length and the retina and hence, increasing the flexibility of the lens. With the help of this treatment, patients are able to get a highly-improved vision and a better quality of life.
