Can help these: Contact lenses come in virtually all possible powers, including ones that correct farsightedness and astigmatism at the same time. The lenses tend to have few power choices for extreme farsightedness compared to nearsightedness, however. An optometrist or ophthalmologist can fit for contact lenses.
