There was a time when astigmatism treatment required eyeglasses, but you can now benefit from contacts for astigmatism here at Contact Lens Associates. It's just one of the ways that we work to offer you outstanding vision simply and easily thanks to our College Park eye lenses.
Astigmatism is, along with nearsightedness and farsightedness, one of the most common refractive conditions. It differs from the others in that instead of affecting how well you see up close or far away, it is responsible for blurry vision at all distances. The reason that this occurs is that the shape of your cornea changes from its natural round to one that more closely resembles a spoon, thereby causing light to refract unevenly. The most obvious symptoms that you would expect to notice when you have astigmatism are blurry or wavy vision, eye strain, and eye fatigue. Our College Park eye lenses will restore clear and sharp vision and minimize or eliminate your symptoms. Many times, astigmatism is diagnosed during a routine eye exam, though, before any signs have developed. We recommend a yearly visit to our office for that reason, among others. Once you have been determined to have astigmatism, our eye doctor will write a prescription that addresses your specific needs perfectly. Our optical department then helps you to find the contact lenses that not only correct your vision, but also meet your needs and requirements when it comes to lifestyle and comfort. It is not unusual for astigmatism to accompany either nearsightedness or farsightedness, or both, so you could need bifocal or trifocal vision correction from our College Park eye lenses. If so, we can certainly accommodate you.
All you have to do is reach out to us right now and arrange a convenient time to come in for an eye examination. Don't settle for vision that is any less than the best you can have.
