Astigmatism, along with nearsightedness and farsightedness, is a common refractive condition that causes your vision to be less than ideal. Fortunately, at the office of Dr. Paul Thompson, all it takes is an eye exam and a prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses to correct the effects of astigmatism.

Your cornea, the part of your eye located at the front, is responsible for the transfer of light that enters your eye to the back of your eye, where the retina is. The normal shape of the cornea is round, though more like a spoon than a sphere or circle. What happens with astigmatism is that your cornea loses its shape and morphs into one that is more conical. And because of this, light refracts unevenly, in one direction more than the other. Nearly everyone has some degree of astigmatism, but if it does not affect your vision, our Las Vegas eye care will leave it be. It is highly recommended that all adults have a yearly eye exam at our office, and it is here that astigmatism is typically diagnosed. However, if you are noticing that your vision has become blurry or wavy, eye strain or eye fatigue, these are typical symptoms and you may want to come in for our Las Vegas eye care even if it has not been a year since your last visit. Our optometrist will write you a prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses, the choice being yours. Often, astigmatism is accompanied by either nearsightedness, farsightedness, or both. As a result, bifocal or trifocal lenses are generally required to provide you the necessary and complete level of vision correction.
