Astigmatism can accompany any form of refractive error and is very common. It results from a steepening of the cornea or natural lens, causing light to be focused unevenly, which is the main optical problem with this condition.

Symptoms

To individuals with uncorrected astigmatism, images may look blurry, stretched or shadowed.

Treatment

Astigmatism can be corrected with glasses, contact lenses, corneal relaxing incisions, LASIK vision correction and special implant lenses. Please note that we do not handle LASIK vision correction surgery directly at Malouf Eye Center, but we are part of the Vision Innovation Partners network and can refer you to a number of excellent providers for your LASIK needs.
