Astigmatism is a condition where there is a defect in the curvature of your eye. This condition may cause you to see distorted images, have eye discomfort or strain, headaches, and difficulty seeing at night. People with this condition find it hard or impossible to wear traditional contact lenses. Advanced Family Eye Care PC in Stevensville, Benton Harbor, St. Joseph, and South Haven, MI, can help you find contact lenses made for astigmatism.
What Is the Difference in Contacts?
Contacts are normally designed for people with spherical-shaped eyes, but people with astigmatism usually have more of an egg-shaped eye. People with astigmatism usually cannot wear contacts comfortably or at all. Manufacturers of contacts for astigmatism create them to fit that specific eye shape. People with astigmatism can get the vision correction they need without wearing eyeglasses through this.
What to Expect
A person with astigmatism can consult with their eye doctor to determine if they are a candidate for contact lenses for astigmatism. Some people cannot wear any form of contact lenses due to the shape of their eyes. Your eye doctor will pass off the prescription information to the eye clinic office if they determine you can use contact lenses. You can then get the contact lenses for your specific needs.
