Laser operations




Hyperopia is a visual defect caused by an eye that is too short or too flat, making vision blurred at close range and, in some cases, both near and far.



  • Symptoms: visual fatigue and headaches

Correction of hyperopia


The laser


Laser correction of hyperopia involves curving the central part of the cornea so that the image of an object can be re-formed on the retina (point of sharpness). Astigmatism can be corrected in the same operation.


All laser operations are performed at the Azur Vision Ophthalmological Center.



  • Very quick, painless operation
  • Visual recovery the day after surgery

Operation sequence


Laser surgery for hyperopia

Preoperative examination :

The ophthalmologist determines your eligibility for the operation by performing additional tests. He can also answer any questions you may have.

Day of operation

The operation consists of enlarging the central part of the cornea. It is performed under local anaesthetic and lasts just a few minutes.

Post-operative follow-up :

You'll be back home within a few hours of the operation. You will need to rest and follow the instructions provided by the medical team.

Visual recovery :

Visual recovery generally takes 24 to 48 hours and the patient can resume activities the following day.
