The shape and curvature of your corneas are related to the quality of your vision. Astigmatism is responsible for blurry or wavy vision at all distances, unlike nearsightedness or farsightedness. Fortunately, the solution is simple. At the office of E.B. Meyorwitz & Dell, a pair of prescription glasses or contacts will counteract the negative impact of astigmatism.
Your cornea should be round. When it is, your vision is typically normal. It is when it begins to more closely resemble a spoon that light ends up refracting unevenly, more in one direction than the other. The result is that you can only focus on one part of what you’re seeing, and therefore the blurriness and waviness is what you experience. The cause of this misshaping of your cornea may be related to pressure on them that is due to spending too long looking at things up close, poor posture, or heredity. Babies can even be born astigmatic. As part of an eye exam here at our optometry Bryant Park, astigmatism is detected. And if you notice any of the following signs, you should not wait for your annual visit: eye fatigue, eye strain, headaches, and, of course, blurry or wavy vision. Come in promptly, because there is no reason you should have subpar vision when you don’t have to. Both eyeglasses and contact lenses are highly effective in correcting astigmatism, so the choice is yours. Our optometry Bryant Park will provide the accurate prescription. And since astigmatism is often accompanied by either nearsightedness, farsightedness, or both, you might need bifocal or multi-focal lenses. If so, that’s no problem at all. We will fill your prescriptions right here for your convenience.
Schedule your yearly visit to our office by calling us and arranging a convenient time. The ability to see sharply and clearly at all distances is something you need and deserve.
