At Optical Visit, our New Rochelle opticians are dedicated to providing each of our clients with the highest quality eye care services available. One of the most common eye conditions that we see in our patients is astigmatism. Astigmatism a condition that is categorized by having an irregular curvature in your cornea. It is a highly common refractive error. Actually, most people have some level of astigmatism in their eyes. If the curvature is significant in its irregularity, treatment is usually required. Fortunately, astigmatism can easily be corrected using products like prescription contact lenses, eyeglasses, and in some cases, even corrective surgery.
Astigmatism often runs in families, and it is usually present at birth. Other causes of astigmatism aside from inheriting it include: excess pressure on the cornea from the eyelids, having incorrect posture, or using your eyes often for close-up work. There are certain symptoms that can indicate that you might have an astigmatism that hasn’t been diagnosed. These symptoms might include eyestrain, fatigue, headaches, and blurry vision. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you should visit our New Rochelle opticians. Through a simple eye examination, we will be able to tell you if your symptoms are a result of astigmatism, and if so we will recommend the treatment options available to you.
