A distortion in the shape of your eye can cause major vision issues. Such is the case with astigmatism, which necessitates glasses, and in some cases, LASIK eye surgery. The good news is that we can provide both here at Paragon Eye Associates. Our team of expert optometrists and ophthalmologists is here to help you improve your vision and quality of life. Schedule in Mansfield or Arlington, Texas, to learn more.
What Causes Astigmatism?
There are two types of astigmatism. When your cornea has a distorted shape, you have corneal astigmatism. When the shape of your lens is distorted, you have lenticular astigmatism. Both of these issues can occur due to eye disease, injury, or botched surgery. In both types, your vision can appear blurry and distorted.
Can Astigmatism Be Treated?
This condition can be addressed through the use of eyeglasses and contact lenses. The right option for you depends on your personal preference. LASIK eye surgery is another option and can offer a permanent solution to your vision problems. To learn more, explore each of our options below:
