Ive been struggling with hypermetropia for a while. Im tired of the thick glasses ( 13/ 14) especially since they dont help with wide sight which I need for driving, and contacts are a hassle ( 17.5 20). Ive been to many doctors all around Canada in search for a surgical treatment but the only one that sees available is a lens transplant which is risky and no doctor is willing to perform, there concern is that I am still young (22) and it may disconnect or tear as i may be still physically active. From what I understand my lens is almost completely flat, other than that I believe my eyes are healthy.
I am currently using soft contacts which are a hassle since my eyes are getting slightly worse and I cannot go past 20, anything above 20 makes the contacts too heavy causing them to drop slightly thus making them go out of focus and giving me double vision. I have small eyes and allergies which also make them annoying especially when putting them on early in the morning.
I tried hard contacts but again since my eyes are small there are extremely uncomfortable as soon as I put them in, I couldn't even keep them in for 2 minutes without clenching my eyes shut and causing a waterfall of tears.
Is there any new procedures that have been developed in the recent years, or any one that has had a successful surgery? Literally anywhere in the world im open to all options no matter the distance or price.
(ps, i made a similar post a year ago but it got lost through reddit and archived, thank you to those that replied, hoping you find this again)
