When you have gotten a diagnosis of astigmatism, a lot of questions may come to mind about why it started and what it's going to mean for your vision. If you have astigmatism, the front surface of your eye has an abnormal shape that is not perfectly round. When an eye isn't round, it doesn't process vision in the same way as a round eyeball. Astigmatism is common among the population, with many people having a small degree of it. However, for most people, their small amount of astigmatism isn't enough to affect their vision, and they never notice it. If it is more pronounced, it will affect the patient's vision and require a method of vision correction. This may be specific contact lenses that are made to correct this vision condition. When it's time for your eye exam, call our optometry office in Conroe, TX, to make an appointment with the optometrist. We at Today’s Vision Conroe are here to help.


What Is Astigmatism?

If you have astigmatism, there may be several causes behind it. The front surface of the eye not being round is the main cause, but the eye can end up that way in a number of ways. Eye surgeries can cause this abnormal eyeball shape, as can certain injuries to the eye as well as specific eye diseases. In many cases, the patient was simply born with eyeballs shaped abnormally. Having this shape means that light will bend unevenly instead of evenly as with a round eyeball. This makes the eye able to focus on one part of what you see while making the rest of it look distorted and blurred. 

Symptoms of Astigmatism

The blurry vision that often comes with this condition makes a lot of patients think they only have nearsightedness or farsightedness. After all, each of these conditions have blurry vision as a symptom. However, when astigmatism is present, it causes not just blurriness. If you have astigmatism, it can give you eye strain and eye fatigue from trying to see more clearly. It can also give you headaches. If you are suffering from these symptoms, it's time to see an optometrist to have him look at your eyes and tell you whether you have astigmatism. There are corrective lenses that can help with this condition.
