Question: Does LASIK Surgery correct farsightedness or hyperopia?
Answer: LASIK Surgery can correct farsightedness or hyperopia. However whether LASIK Eye Surgery is the procedure of choice for people who are farsighted can only be answered after a thorough examination and consultation with a LASIK Surgeon who can offer LASIK Surgery as well as other possible alternatives to LASIK that might prove to be as good as or even better than LASIK including PRK and Lens Replacement Surgery. The ultimate decision can only be made between you and a top LASIK surgeon after your consultation.
