ASTIGMATISM AND EYE CARE FROM OUR EYE DOCTOR
Astigmatism involves an eye curve that doesn’t properly allow the entry of light into the eye. This results in blurred vision and can drastically impact your ability to function in life without treatment. If you are looking for astigmatism treatment and are in the Frisco, TX, area, we at Today's Vision are here to help.
Treatment for Astigmatism and Blurry Vision
Corrective eyeglasses are the go-to eye care solution for many astigmatism patients, which avoids any surgery or contact issues with the eye. Specialized contact lenses are also available and can provide corrective vision after being fitted to the patient’s specific prescription. Finally, surgery can permanently correcting astigmatism but many astigmatism patients are able to function just fine in life with eyeglasses or contact lenses for eye care, never looking to get eye surgery. Although we do not offer eye surgery, we can provide a consultation to see if you are a good candidate and can then direct you to an eye surgeon who can perform the procedure.
Symptoms of Astigmatism
The varying degrees of astigmatism can affect people differently. Symptoms our eye doctor may see can include blurry vision, which can be corrected with contact lenses or eyeglasses. Other symptoms include eye strain, headaches, mild pain and significant inability to see clearly at night or in the dark. If you are having some or all of these conditions, get an eye exam from our optometrist on our optometry team so that you can get treatment for it. Uncorrected astigmatism can cause a number of problems that can disrupt your life but they can be solved with a quick visit to our eye doctor’s office.
