To see properly without blurriness, the different parts of your eyes need to work together. For those with refractive errors, this doesn't necessarily happen. Alongside the two most well-known refractive errors, nearsightedness, and farsightedness, is lesser-known astigmatism. This refractive vision error is less specific than others. Astigmatism causes the curve on the cornea of your eye to not match the curve of the lens inside your eye. If the discrepancy is severe enough, some sort of corrective action is necessary to restore vision stability. At Indigo Vision Center, we have provided Georgetown residents with astigmatism treatment for many years.
Astigmatism, with or without Other Vision Problems
While astigmatism does frequently happen alongside nearsightedness or farsightedness, it can also happen independently of these conditions. That's just one reason why regular visits to your eye doctor remain important, even if you don't notice big changes in your vision.
Treating astigmatism may mean adjusting your eyeglass or contact prescription, trying specialty contacts, or even exploring vision surgery options. Vision blurriness can also be an indication of more serious conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, or retinal problems.
The signs of astigmatism are often subtle, so it is important to be diligent when it comes to caring for your eyes. In addition to noticing general blurriness, you may also experience eye pain, headaches, or a worsening of your night vision. Regardless of the reason, it is important to look into exactly what is happening.
