Astigmatism Treatment in Marietta and Kennesaw, GA

Correcting Astigmatism with Classic Vision Care

Astigmatism isn’t just frustrating because it blurs your vision and affects your daily life: it’s also a trickier eye condition that isn’t always solved by standard glasses or contact lenses. Thankfully, we don’t just offer specialty eyewear for astigmatism, we have several solutions and make sure you’re taking on the world with the sharpest sight you can have!

What Is Astigmatism?

The front of your eye — your cornea — is like the round front of a camera that lets light in and focuses vision. If you have astigmatism, your cornea is misshapen, which can distort eyesight at multiple distances. It’s different from myopia (nearsightedness) or hyperopia (farsightedness) because with those conditions, the cornea is too flat or too long, while astigmatism makes the cornea more of an awkward oval or football shape that’s harder to correct.

What Does Astigmatism Mean for You?

Astigmatism comes with all of the same difficulties that myopia and hyperopia bring: blurry eyesight, difficulty carrying out daily tasks ranging from reading to driving, and symptoms like headaches, eye strain, and poor vision in extra bright or dark situations. But astigmatism comes with the added challenge that, especially with more severe cases, the standard glasses and contacts offered by most eyewear providers can’t deliver full correction.

Thankfully, there are plenty of astigmatism eyewear options — and we carry them!

How We Diagnose Astigmatism

By checking the reflection off your retina with our autorefractor, and using keratometry to examine the curvature of your cornea, we won’t just detect astigmatism during your comprehensive eye exam: we find the exact degree of distortion in each eye. From there, we’ll walk you through your astigmatism treatment options and find the best ones for you.

Specialty Lenses for Astigmatism

If you have astigmatism, you may not be used to wearing contacts because of having “hard-to-fit” eyes. However, we have specialty lenses to give you the clearest vision and supreme comfort! These cutting-edge contacts make seeing your best while enjoying a flexible lifestyle a cinch — and we’re proud to have several types to choose from.

Toric Lenses

Toric Lenses

Many people with astigmatism cannot wear traditional contacts because of their elliptical-shaped cornea, but that’s where toric lenses are different. These specialty contacts are designed specifically to adhere to your unique corneal shape, which makes wearing them easy — and their clarity even better!

We offer SynergEyes® Duette hybrid contacts, which contain a soft edge for supreme comfort, and a hard middle for exceptional vision.
