In other cases, people may choose to correct hyperopia with LASIK or another similar form of refractive surgery. These surgical procedures are used to correct or improve your vision by reshaping the cornea, or front surface of your eye, effectively adjusting your eye's focusing ability.

There is not adequate scientific evidence to suggest that eye exercises, vitamins or pills can prevent or cure hyperopia.  

There is no best method for correcting hyperopia. The most appropriate correction for you depends on your eyes and your lifestyle. You should discuss your lifestyle with your eye doctor to decide which correction may be most effective for you.
