If you have poor vision, it can affect many areas of your life, including your job performance, the ability to safely drive, or participate in your favorite pastimes. Hyperopia, also often called farsightedness, is one of the most common types of vision issues. Approximately a fourth of the people in our country live with hyperopia. Hyperopia is the decreased ability to focus on items that are at less than arm's distance, for example, books or photographs. Activities, like reading, texting, and even things like shaving, can be quite challenging. Similar to nearsightedness, the degree of farsightedness can range from mild to severe and might cause other frustrating discomforts that can impact you frequently. Luckily, there are several helpful treatment options for hyperopia.

At SPEX, our professional eye care team can examine you for farsightedness and help you decide on a viable treatment option. Contact us for your appointment at our Seattle, WA facility for a thorough eye exam with optometrist Dr. Scott Campbell, and be one step closer to having better vision.

During your visit with SPEX, your optometrist will perform a thorough eye exam to check your general eye health. Every comprehensive exam will include routine vision acuity tests and other assessments of how your eyes are functioning. Patients can opt for glasses, contacts, or both to correct their vision, depending on their daily routines, and we will help you select the best lenses for your eyes. Certain patients with hyperopia may also consider laser vision correction procedures, such as LASIK or PRK. Once your optometrist completes the exams, we will talk with you about whether refractive surgery is an effective option for you. For those who are candidates, refractive surgery can offer remarkable long-term outcomes.

Dr. Campbell is THE BEST. The staff squeezed me in to his busy schedule for an irritating eye issue. I was in and out in 10 minutes, he determined exactly what was going on, and had a quick solution!!! Did I mention THE BEST!!!

While visiting Seattle from Houston, the screw came out of the arm of my glasses. The lovely ladies at Spex were able to fix my glasses better than before with a locktite screw. I am so thankful to be able to use my glasses! Thank you so very much!

The optometrist has (innovative) excellent communication skills. I felt really confident with his advice and prescription. The two staff members made for a comfortable, memorable experience and I will definitely return for my next eye exam.

Dr. Scott Campbell is the best! Our family has been seeing him for many years and my husband and I have moved to 2 different locations that put us 5+ hours and 1.5 hours from his office. We still keep him as our eye doctor. His office is immaculate, his staff is very friendly, caring and helpful, and Scott is up on the latest new eye conventions. He does refer patients to other specialties when needed. Our experience is that he is always on time so no unnecessary waiting for your appointment. His office is in the middle of the downtown core, 1 block from Nordstrom. I never hesitate to recommend Dr. Scott Campbell at Spex!
