Convex lenses are needed to correct this condition

 Contact Lenses:

A farsighted-correcting contact lens is the opposite, thicker in the center than in the periphery.


For hyperopia correction, more sculpting is preformed in the periphery than in the center. This results in the removal of a concave-lens-shaped portion of tissue, which is optically equivalent to adding a convex lens to the eye’s optical scheme. 

Farsightedness (hyperopia) is the optical opposite of nearsightedness. In a farsighted eye, light would focus behind the retina, so when it does meet the retina a blurry image is perceived. Farsightedness affects about 10% of the adult population.

Farsightedness correction by laser involves sculpting so as to steepen central corneal curvature. Glasses and contacts correct this by adding a convex lens to the optical system, whereas laser treatment works by evaporating or subtracting a concave lens-shape from the cornea.
