Correcting farsightedness is much harder than nearsightedness, and in fact +4.5 was the limit of what they could do with the machine. Correcting farsightedness is done by cutting concentric grooves around the middle of the lens to make it more spherical. But the lens is gelatinous and will settle after cutting like this. So coming from +4.5, they had to correct to -1 so that it would end up near 0 after healing.

Now it should be stable. I have a checkup again near the end of the year if it has gotten worse, they will correct it for free.
