If you are farsighted (hyperopic) you have difficulty seeing objects close-up, which is the result of light rays focusing behind the retina rather than on it.
If you’re farsighted, your prescription begins with a plus number. The higher the numeral, the stronger your lenses will be. Farsightedness can be corrected with glasses or contact lenses.
- “Hard” (rigid gas permeable) lenses are best for providing crisp, clear vision, especially for people with higher amounts of hyperopia. However, hard lenses are often irritating and uncomfortable. Rigid lens wearers also experience the irritation of debris collecting under the lens, and rigid lenses move when you blink and may dislodge during activity.
- Soft lenses are the most comfortable to wear, but often provided soft, fuzzy vision. For people with higher amounts of hyperopia, soft contact lenses may not provide enough correction to deliver good vision.

No matter what type of contact lenses you currently use, there’s a good chance you’re compromising on either clarity or comfort. Now a technological breakthrough makes having to choose a thing of the past.
