According to Cheng et al corneal curvature in myopes was found to be relatively less than in hyperopes. (25)
More the myopic refractive error, lesser becomes the corneal curvature and conversely, hyperopes were found to have relatively more corneal curvature.
This surgeon generally recommends bilateral surgery to hyperopes and high myopes and unilateral surgery first for low myopes and emmetropes with low presbyopia ([less than or equal to] +1.50 D).
It should be noted that the SPE was taken from habitual refractions, which may have overestimated myopia in younger patients with a masking of latent hyperopes prior to age 46.
Many hyperopes do accommodate by the appropriate number of dioptres between near and distance, but they maintain similar levels of hyperopic blur throughout (see Figure 4), as long as the task does not enforce accommodation.
