Have you been told you have astigmatism?

Are constant headaches and eyestrain impacting your life?

Astigmatism is a common eye condition characterized by an irregular curvature of the cornea that causes blurry, fuzzy, or distorted vision.

While astigmatism can certainly be a nuisance, there is no reason to suffer from it. It can be easily corrected with eyeglasses, contact lenses, or laser eye surgery.

How We Can Help

normal eye and eye with astigmatism

  • Come in for an eye exam and we’ll determine what type of lens correction will offer you the clearest vision possible.
  • We’ll discuss all your treatment options so you can feel confident that you’ve chosen the best option for your visual needs and lifestyle.
  • During your follow-up visit, we’ll make sure that you’re comfortable with your new eyewear and we'll check that your new lenses are providing you with crisp, clear vision.

4 Ways to Treat Astigmatism

  • Prescription eyeglasses

    Mild to moderate levels of astigmatism can often be corrected with eyeglasses that contain a unique optical power (cylinder) to combat blurry vision caused by astigmatism.

  • Toric contact lenses

    Toric contact lenses are customized to your corneal shape and contain varying corrective powers throughout the lens. These soft contact lenses provide clear, sharp vision for people with mild to moderate astigmatism.

  • Scleral contact lenses

    Scleral contact lenses are ideal for moderate to severe astigmatism. These specialized rigid lenses are designed to arch over your irregular shaped cornea and rest on your sclera (the white part of your eye), to deliver clear vision.

  • Laser eye surgery

    If you’re looking to free yourself from eyeglasses and contact lenses, laser eye surgery offers permanent astigmatism correction. Candidacy for laser eye surgery depends on your age, and the type and severity of your astigmatism.

No matter your level of astigmatism, Vision Care Associates in Cornersburg has the perfect solution for your needs.


Astigmatism Diagnosis Treatment FAQs

What does astigmatism do to your eyes?

Astigmatism occurs when either the cornea or the lens inside the eye has mismatched curves, causing the eye surface to be egg-shaped rather than round.

While astigmatism causes blurry vision at all distances, it can also cause:

  • Wavy or distorted vision
  • Eye strain
  • Headaches
  • Squinting
  • Poor night vision
How do you fix astigmatism?

If you have astigmatism, corrective lenses (contacts or glasses) specifically designed for astigmatic eyes are an effective way to correct your blurry vision. They contain your optical prescription along with a specific cylinder lens power to target astigmatism and provide you with crystal clear vision. Laser surgery is another effective option to correct astigmatism.

Why has my astigmatism worsened?

About 20% of babies are born with astigmatism. In most cases, it disappears by around age 5. In others, astigmatism can become permanent and even worsen over time, generally stabilizing once the eyes reach their adult size (at around age 20).
