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 Garland Vision Center in Coomer Creek today!

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, Garland Vision Center in Coomer Creek has the perfect solution for your needs.

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).

Excellent customer service as soon as you walk-in, to the second you leave! My son’s glasses were ... in super quick and the eyeglass technician was very knowledgeable and friendly while helping us pick out his new glasses and during adjusting/fitting when picking up the new glasses. Great experience, thank you!

Great friendly and professional Staff. Dr.Kin really took her time and didn’t rush. She made sure ... my three little ones received the best vision care. I can’t remember this one Staff members name, I believe it was Sarah but she helped my son find his glasses and confidence. He was having a very hard time being a newbie to wearing glasses. Silent tears was falling and I have to admit I wasn’t making it any better. She left the biggest impression on me by calming him down, finding the perfect pair of glasses and making him feel cool about wearing them. I believe she was from Michigan big shout out and kudos to her! Thank you so much!

I came here for the first time having been a patient of Dr. Hernandez at the original Plano location... . Dr. Yin was very polite and took care to explain my symptoms to me. I was pleased to experience the same level of quality as I was used to. After reading some reviews, I remind others to remember that doctors and other HCPs have only as much information as you provide.

I've come here a couple years now and the physicians & service is always fantastic! I had a bit of a... n issue with my glasses last year, but Sarah was so professional and took care of everything. They were all so wonderful I came back again this year. Go see my guy Manuel, he'll help you pick out something fabulous from their wide selection of stylish frames.

I’ve had really good experiences here. The communication at the front desk with Katelyn is always ... very helpful and the exam process along with the checkout is always so swiftly taken care of by Sarah. The atmosphere is great!

I found Garland Vision amongst my providers after a bad experience with an eye chain care clinic. I ... was hesitant as I had two previous bad experiences but this one turned to be a nice experience. Staff is patience and kind, lenses take like a week to be made and quality of the product is great. I have four kids who wear lenses and they constantly get them broke, so good quality is something I always look for.
