Have you been told you have astigmatism?

Are constant headaches and eyestrain impacting your life?

Astigmatism is a common eye condition characterized by an irregular curvature of the cornea that causes blurry, fuzzy, or distorted vision.

While astigmatism can certainly be a nuisance, there is no reason to suffer from it. It can be easily corrected with eyeglasses, contact lenses, or laser eye surgery.

For astigmatism treatment, contact Memorial Eye Center - Heights Blvd in Northside today!

Give Your Eyes the Care They Deserve

How We Can Help

normal eye and eye with astigmatism

  • Come in for an eye exam and we’ll determine what type of lens correction will offer you the clearest vision possible.
  • We’ll discuss all your treatment options so you can feel confident that you’ve chosen the best option for your visual needs and lifestyle.
  • During your follow-up visit, we’ll make sure that you’re comfortable with your new eyewear and we'll check that your new lenses are providing you with crisp, clear vision.

4 Ways to Treat Astigmatism

  • Prescription eyeglasses

    Mild to moderate levels of astigmatism can often be corrected with eyeglasses that contain a unique optical power (cylinder) to combat blurry vision caused by astigmatism.

  • Toric contact lenses

    Toric contact lenses are customized to your corneal shape and contain varying corrective powers throughout the lens. These soft contact lenses provide clear, sharp vision for people with mild to moderate astigmatism.

  • Scleral contact lenses

    Scleral contact lenses are ideal for moderate to severe astigmatism. These specialized rigid lenses are designed to arch over your irregular shaped cornea and rest on your sclera (the white part of your eye), to deliver clear vision.

  • Laser eye surgery

    If you’re looking to free yourself from eyeglasses and contact lenses, laser eye surgery offers permanent astigmatism correction. Candidacy for laser eye surgery depends on your age, and the type and severity of your astigmatism.

No matter your level of astigmatism, Memorial Eye Center - Heights Blvd in Northside has the perfect solution for your needs.

Amazing experience from booking my appointment with an ease and being able to communicate my needs t... o reschedule my appointment was also a breeze. The staffs here are super accommodating and helpful in answering all of my questions as I had a lapse of time in getting my eye exam. Dr. Dixie Yee was extremely knowledgeable and helpful in helping me getting my contact lens exam and also my glasses exam. Choosing the frames and fitting my glasses was also a breeze with the front of office staffs as well. Thank you all for an amazing experience!

Love my experience with this place. My appointment was a blessing ,I had a previous eyecare company ... that I dealt with and there is no comparison. Everyone was nice and professional. They actually had an ophthalmologist on site to help me . Walter helped me with all that I needed and was a very good person. He let me try on several pairs to see what I liked and what I was comfortable with . He even straightened the glasses I already had to keep them from falling . Love this place !

I’ve been a long time patient of this location, the new doctor is fantastic. She’s very attentiv... e, knowledgeable, and has great bedside manner. She caught a chronic problem that the previous doctor never even mentioned to me and after my appointment she casually asked what my job was and after I told her she pulled me back into the exam room to give me more specific information about the risk of high impact job activities that could affect my eye health. She really cares about the health of your eyes.

I highly recommend this office for all eye concerns. The entire staff are very helpful and friendly.... I’ve been to many offices over the years. I will continue to be a patient here. It’s a different feeling. They give you the “warm and Fuzzy” family like feeling. I think the staff members are truly friends. I can tell there is a team like atmosphere here.

Astigmatism Diagnosis Treatment FAQs

What does astigmatism do to your eyes?

Astigmatism occurs when either the cornea or the lens inside the eye has mismatched curves, causing the eye surface to be egg-shaped rather than round.

While astigmatism causes blurry vision at all distances, it can also cause:

  • Wavy or distorted vision
  • Eye strain
  • Headaches
  • Squinting
  • Poor night vision
How do you fix astigmatism?

If you have astigmatism, corrective lenses (contacts or glasses) specifically designed for astigmatic eyes are an effective way to correct your blurry vision. They contain your optical prescription along with a specific cylinder lens power to target astigmatism and provide you with crystal clear vision. Laser surgery is another effective option to correct astigmatism.

Why has my astigmatism worsened?

About 20% of babies are born with astigmatism. In most cases, it disappears by around age 5. In others, astigmatism can become permanent and even worsen over time, generally stabilizing once the eyes reach their adult size (at around age 20).
