Difference Between Hyperopia and Presbyopia?

Hypermetropia and presbyopia are eye disorders that cause difficulty in seeing up close.

Hypermetropia occurs from birth and is caused by the lens having too little curvature or the eye being too short.

Presbyopia, on the other hand, results from the aging lens losing its ability to accommodate with age.

Glasses or contact lenses can be used for both vision impairments.

For those who do not want to use glasses or contact lenses, laser treatment can be an option for hypermetropia. Smart lens treatment can be performed for hypermetropia and presbyopia after the age of 40.
