Signs of Astigmatism
Blurry vision is the classic sign of astigmatism. Unlike nearsightedness or farsightedness, astigmatism causes blurry vision at all distances. While blurry vision is certainly the most common symptom of astigmatism, it is certainly not the only one. Astigmatism can also cause eyestrain. Also, the eyestrain can lead to headaches. Untreated astigmatism can lead to lazy eye, especially if the condition started when you were young. The condition also tends to worsen over time, so it's best to come in for treatment as soon as you believe that you may have astigmatism.
Astigmatism Is More Than an Annoyance
While some people may view astigmatism as merely an annoyance, this is not the case. It can cause serious problems. For example, astigmatism can make driving difficult. As previously mentioned, untreated astigmatism may eventually lead to lazy eye.
Our Eye Doctor in Falmouth Can Treat Your Astigmatism
In the past, astigmatism could only be treated with special glasses. Eventually, hard contact lenses were developed that effectively treated astigmatism. These contact lenses actually treated astigmatism better than glasses, as they provided a wider field of view. However, many people found these contacts to be uncomfortable. These days, soft astigmatism contact lenses are commonplace. We can provide you with these soft contact lenses, which are both comfortable and effective.
