This is a condition related to the shape of the cornea. This common issue can affect the quality of your vision and impact your life without proper diagnosis and treatment.
Some symptoms of astigmatism can include issues with night vision, blurry vision, or distortion of images. It may also cause eye strain and chronic headaches that can impact the quality of your life. A few risk factors associated with astigmatism include poor vision, heredity, and even previous eye surgery.
It’s important to distinguish the two types of astigmatism. They are lenticular and corneal. The lenticular type is related to the lens on the cornea, while the corneal type refers to the shape of the cornea and how it affects the light when it hits the cornea.
The treatment for astigmatism depends on the individual. Treatments can range from special glasses and contacts specifically designed to compensate for astigmatism, or you may be a good candidate for LASIK to help you see clearly without the assistance of glasses or contacts.
Factors affecting your course of treatment can include insurance, age, severity, health, and budget. To understand the best course of treatment for your condition, you need to schedule an appointment for an examination. From there, the optometry team will provide further testing and consultation to let you know your best options, so you can decide what is best for your needs.
