Astigmatism can cause blurry vision and make tasks like reading or driving difficult. At Orange County Vision Center in Garden Grove, CA, we provide comprehensive eye exams to learn more about your condition and treatment that will help you see more clearly. Before scheduling your appointment, learn more about astigmatism below:


What Is Astigmatism?

Astigmatism is a refractive error that results in blurry vision due to an irregularly shaped cornea. When light enters the eye, it focuses on one spot on the retina instead of spreading evenly across its surface. Some other symptoms of astigmatism include:

•             Eyestrain

•             Headaches

•             Fatigue

•             Difficulty seeing objects that are near and far away

•             Light sensitivity

How Does an Optometrist Diagnose Astigmatism?

Our optometrists perform various eye tests to determine whether or not you have astigmatism. A refraction test measures the curvature of your eye and checks for any irregularities. Our eye doctors may also do a refraction test, during which you will look at different images on a monitor and report back on how clearly you can see them.

Treatment for Astigmatism

At our optometry, we offer different treatments to help those living with astigmatism. One of the most common is orthokeratology, or Ortho-K, which focuses on temporarily reshaping the cornea and improve your vision. We can also discuss eyeglasses and the various types of contact lenses that can help you see clearly. Once we learn more about your condition, we can recommend the appropriate treatment.
