Astigmatism

Fatigue, eye strain, headaches, and blurred vision are just some of the symptoms of astigmatism, one of the most common conditions to afflict the eye. These symptoms can have a very negative impact on your daily life, but there’s no reason you should have to suffer.

Put simply, astigmatism means that an eye is not completely round. The normal eyeball is almost completely spherical. However, an eyeball that suffers from astigmatism is elliptically shaped, much like a football. This condition is completely natural. Often people are born with them, however, astigmatism can also occur as a result of an injury, an eye disease or as a side effect of surgery.

Because it affects the angle by which light enters the eyeball, an astigmatism changes or bends the light more in one direction than another as it hits the surface area of the retina. As a result, astigmatism can cause a couple of different vision problems, including blurred vision or double vision.

Astigmatism can only be detected and diagnosed through a careful eye exam. Therefore, if you are experiencing the symptoms of astigmatism, the most important thing you can do is schedule an appointment with the doctors at Hollywood Vision.

Luckily, once it’s been diagnosed astigmatism is very treatable, with potential remedies ranging from simple eyeglasses or contacts to refractive surgery in more severe cases. The trained specialists at Hollywood Vision will discuss with you the best option for treating your astigmatism.
