At Eye Care Center LTD in Addison and Burbank, IL, we provide eye exams to learn more about your condition and treatment to help you see more clearly. Prior to visiting us, learn about some causes and symptoms of astigmatism below:


Symptoms of Astigmatism

If you have astigmatism, you may experience a variety of symptoms. Some of these symptoms include:

•             Blurry vision

•             Eye strain

•             Headaches

•             Increased glare

•             Squinting to see objects clearly

•             Halos around lights

Causes of Astigmatism

Astigmatism can occur when your eye has a steeper curvature than normal, which affects how light bends when it enters your eye and cause blurry vision at any distance. In many cases, an irregularly shaped cornea causes astigmatism. However, it can also be inherited or develop due to cataracts or eye injuries.

Diagnosing Astigmatism

Astigmatism can often be diagnosed with an eye exam. Our eye doctor will typically check your visual acuity and do a refraction test. You might also have other tests done, such as keratometry to measure the shape of your cornea or a slit lamp test to check different parts of your eye. After confirming that you have astigmatism, we can discuss treatments with you.

Treatment for Astigmatism

What treatments are available for astigmatism? For mild cases, prescription lenses might not be needed. However, if the condition interferes with your daily activities, you can wear prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses for improved vision. Our eye doctor might also recommend specialty contact lenses, depending on the severity of your condition. Along with that, we may suggest cataract surgery if you are experiencing vision problems due to cataracts.
