Similarly to farsightedness and nearsightedness, astigmatism is caused by the curvature of your cornea. Here at Lens Lab Express, we have simple and effective treatments for astigmatism in Corona, including corrective lenses. For a longer lasting solution, laser eye surgery is an excellent option, and with our eye testing, we can determine if you are a good candidate for it.
Under normal circumstances, when light enters your eye through the cornea, it is directed to the center of the retina evenly. With astigmatism in Corona, your cornea’s shape becomes altered, resembling a football more than anything else. This results in the light being refracted more in one direction than the other. So only a portion oaf what you’re looking at can be seen at one time, causing things to appear blurry or wavy. This can occur at all distances: up close, far away, and in the intermediate range. You can inherit astigmatism, and even be born with it. For other people, it develops later on, from pressure on the eyelids or corneas, improper posture, or looking at things up close too often. Among the symptoms to be aware of are headaches, eye strain or fatigue, and blurry vision at any or all distances. Our eye testing can determine if you have astigmatism in Corona. Our optometrist will prescribe eyeglasses or contact lenses to correct it. Toric lenses are designed specifically for addressing astigmatism, and you will be able to enjoy sharper and clearer vision when wearing them. If you would like to consider laser eye surgery for the permanent correction of it, a simple eye exam and evaluation will allow our eye doctor to qualify you in advance.
There is no reason that you have to settle for less than the best vision you can achieve. Call our office and we will schedule our eye testing so that you can be diagnosed and treated for any refractive issue, including astigmatism.
