If you need vision correction and have astigmatism, you may want to learn more about the various products we offer patients, such as astigmatism contact lenses. Residents living in and around the Sandpoint, ID, area can depend on our staff to provide them with the eye care they are looking for. An “optometrist near me” with us at Eye Clinic of Sandpoint is here to help.
If you have an astigmatism, that means that the curvature of your eye is imperfect. Instead of your eye's surface being round, which is typical, the eye is egg-shaped. This misshaped eye surface can cause you to have blurry vision both up close and far away.
Regular contacts are designed to fit a typical round-shaped eye. If someone with an astigmatism tries to wear standard contacts, it can be very uncomfortable for the wearer and may cause irritation and even headaches.
That's why people with astigmatism need to wear contact lenses designed especially for the shape of their eyes. These special contact lenses are comfortable and allow for vision correction that lets you see clearly.
