The computer or a bad diet did not cause the hyperopia, it's due to a short axial length of the eye. Thus computer use or a good diet will not help the problem.
The glasses do not cure the hyperopia but do usally prevent the eyes from crossing and eye fatigue. Sometimes in late teens and early 20's the hyperopia regresses or goes away but not always. It's due to the growth of the eye not the glasses.
