In brief: A Few

Farsightedness or hyperopia can be treated by a variety of methods.
Lasik or prk is the most common way. There is also a temporary treatment called conductive keratoplasty (ck) as well as an implantable contact lens for severe hyperopia. Finally clear lens extraction with lens implantation can be done. See an ophthalmologist to determine which one is best.
