Astigmatism

Our Northwest and Southwest Calgary Eye Doctors Know Astigmatism!

Our eye doctors can diagnose astigmatism with a thorough eye exam. Astigmatism may occur in combination with other vision problems such as nearsightedness and farsightedness, or even dry eyes. Because astigmatism may get worse over time, visit our eye doctor whenever you notice changes in your vision.

Astigmatism is a very common eye condition that’s easily corrected with eyeglasses or contact lenses and occasionally with surgery.

 

Astigmatism: Causes and Symptoms

Astigmatism is caused when your eye is not completely round and occurs in nearly everyone to some degree. In some cases, however, astigmatism causes blurring.

Your eye is naturally shaped like a sphere and when light enters the eye, it bends evenly, creating a clear picture on the back of your eye. However, in a person with astigmatism, their eye is not round but oval and the light entering the eye bends more in one direction than the other so that only part of the picture is in focus at any given time. When this happens, objects at any distance can appear wavy and blurry. For vision problems due to astigmatism, eyeglasses, contact lenses, and sometimes even vision correction surgery, are all possible treatments.

Undetected astigmatism can often cause blurred vision which can be associated with fatigue and eyestrain. While these symptoms may not necessarily be the result of astigmatism, you should schedule an eye exam at Blink Eyewear if you are experiencing one or more symptoms.
