What is Astigmatism?

Astigmatism is a refractive error that occurs when the cornea or lens of the eye is not completely round, resulting in a distorted or blurred vision. It can also cause eyestrain, headaches, and difficulty seeing at night.

Causes of Astigmatism

Astigmatism can be hereditary or can develop due to an injury or disease that affects the eye. In some cases, it can occur as a natural part of the aging process.

Diagnosing Astigmatism in League City, TX.

Diagnosing Astigmatism

Astigmatism can be diagnosed during a comprehensive eye exam by an optometrist. This exam may involve a visual acuity test, a refraction test, and a keratometry test to measure the curvature of the cornea.

Treating Astigmatism

Astigmatism can be corrected through various treatments, including:

Eyeglasses or Contact Lenses: Corrective lenses are a common and effective treatment for astigmatism. Eyeglasses and contact lenses can compensate for the irregular shape of the cornea and provide clear vision.

Refractive Surgery: LASIK and other types of refractive surgery can reshape the cornea to correct astigmatism. This can be a good option for people who do not want to rely on eyeglasses or contact lenses.

Orthokeratology: Orthokeratology, or ortho-k, involves using special contact lenses that reshape the cornea while you sleep. This can provide clear vision throughout the day without the need for corrective lenses.
