COVID-19 UPDATE

Eye care services are classified as an essential service, so we will continue to offer appointments during this second lockdown. We are currently triaging all clients and are prioritising those who feel they are experiencing problems with their vision. Lockdown rules allow for individuals to attend eyecare appointments and clients can be reassured that we are operating under strict hygiene measures. If you feel that your eyecare needs are essential, and you would rather not delay until after lockdown, please call us on 01434 632289 or email admin@croftandgraves.co.uk.

Hyperopia

In Hypermetropia (long sightedness), the eye is shorter than normal or the cornea is too flat, so that light rays focus behind the retina. Light rays from close objects such as pages of a book cannot be focused on clearly by the retina. Someone with hypermetropic eyes may find their vision is blurred when looking at objects near to them, and for vision to be clearer when looking at far away objects. Placing a plus powered (convex) lens in front of a hypermetropic eye allows the image to be moved forward allowing for correct focus on the retina.

A degree of long-sightedness is common in many people, although this only presents a problem when our ability to see is significantly affected or where headaches and eye strain are common.
