Astigmatism at Northwest Indiana Eye & Laser Center-Valparaiso & Knox, IN

By Scott Buck, M.D.

The eye doctors at Northwest Indiana Eye & Laser Center offer diagnosis and treatment of astigmatism for all patients. Astigmatism is a common refractive vision problem that results most often from an unequal curvature of the Cornea. The curvature of a normal Cornea is uniform and typically has the shape of a basketball-that is, it is round or spherical. A patient who has astigmatism has a Cornea that is typically shaped like a football-that is, it has two different curvatures. This results in light being focused on the Retina, or the back of the eye, in two different directions. When light focuses in this manner it can cause blurring or distorted vision to occur. Depending on the location and orientation of the different curvatures in the Cornea, it can result in differing types of blurring and distortion.

At Northwest Indiana Eye & Laser Center, our eye doctors can correct vision problems caused by astigmatism with Eyeglasses, Contact Lenses, Laser Eye Surgery such as LASIK and if you have a Cataract, by implanting an astigmatism correcting Toric Lens Implant.
