TREATED IN DULUTH, GA (NORTH OF ATLANTA) at Georgia Eye Physicians & Surgeons
When patients enter the Georgia Eye Physicians and Surgeon’s office in Duluth, GA (north of Atlanta), it is Dr. Segal and Dr. Lay’s priority to comprehensively evaluate your eyes to determine the best solution for clearer vision. Hyperopia, or farsightedness, is a common eye condition seen among patients experiencing blurred vision or eye strain when it comes to focusing on images. Hyperopia occurs when the cornea’s curvature is too small or the eyeball’s length is short. As light enters the eye and refracts (bends), patients with hyperopia see images up close out of focus while farther objects appear clear.
Dr. Segal and Dr. Lay are able to accurately diagnose hyperopia using standard vision tests during an eye examination. Eyeglasses and contact lenses offer optimal treatment for hyperopia as it provides clearer vision by refocusing the light on the retina to assist in producing clearer vision, while refractive surgery, such as Lasik, can improve and/or correct the vision by reshaping the cornea. Offering safe and effective treatment, Dr. Segal and Dr. Lay will thoroughly discuss with each patient their lifestyle and daily needs to determine which treatment will best suit you.
