Contact Lenses for Astigmatism

You may have astigmatism if you can't focus on anything near or anything far away, the reason being that the cornea of your eye is shaped differently. Fortunately, at Eye Care Center LTD, we have an eye doctor that can administer a contact lens exam to help you get your vision corrected. Come see us if you live in the Willowbrook, IL, Willowbrook, IL, Addison, IL, or Burbank, IL, areas.

Contact Lens for Astigmatism

What Are the Signs of Astigmatism?

The reason that people with astigmatism have trouble focusing on things is that the cornea is shaped improperly. This causes the light that enters their eyes to scatter and makes it difficult to focus.

People who have astigmatism may complain that they have:

•           Blurry Vision

•           Eyestrain

•           Headaches

•           Poor Night Vision

The Eye Exam

First, our eye doctor will conduct a thorough eye exam to determine if your symptoms are, indeed, caused by astigmatism. The exam may measure your visual acuity, the curve of your eye, and how well you can see at certain distances. Then, we will look over the results and make the determination of what kind of contact lenses we should prescribe for you.

The Contact Lenses

Astigmatism is a common eye condition and is easily corrected with glasses or contact lenses. When the contact lenses are ready, our eye doctor will make sure that the lenses fit you perfectly. If this is your first time ever wearing contacts, a member of our team will also show you how to put them in your eyes.

There are different types of contact lenses you can choose from, depending on what will be most convenient for you. You can choose whether to get disposable ones or ones that can be worn several days in a row. If you suffer from dry eye, we can discuss contact lenses that will be less likely to aggravate your condition.
