If you are a resident of Springfield, PA, Chadds Ford, PA, or Holmes, PA, and have issues with your eyes, including astigmatism, come see us at Springfield Opticians. We have an optometrist on our eye doctor team who will examine you and offer treatment methods for it.
What Is Astigmatism?
When people have perfect vision, it means that their eye and lens have a perfect curve to them. This allows them to see things at a correct distance. Astigmatism is when either the eye or the lens has a different curve than the other. This makes things blurry for them.
The main symptom of astigmatism is blurred vision. You may have eye strain and even headaches from trying to read things. Your night vision might also be poor quality which might make driving difficult. People may notice you squinting a lot as you try to see the world around you. You might astigmatism this along with either nearsightedness or farsightedness.
If astigmatism is disrupting your life, an eye doctor on our team is here to help screen you for this eye condition so that you can get treatment.
How We Diagnose
We will give you an eye exam to determine if you have astigmatism. We might also uncover other eye conditions, such as myopia or hyperopia, or even eye diseases, like cataracts or glaucoma. If we diagnose you with any of these eye conditions, we will advise you on your next steps and offer treatment if we can.
There are a variety of things that we can do to treat astigmatism. This includes prescribing glasses or contact lenses. If you don't want either of those, then our optometrist can recommend that you have LASIK surgery. That is an outpatient procedure, and you will have a fast recovery and hopefully not need glasses afterward.
Our eye doctors will gladly talk about all of your options and explain each one in detail. We will help you leave with the best option that suits you.
