Astigmatism in Corona, CA
TriCounty Eye Institute offers treatment for astigmatism to residents of Corona, Riverside, the Inland Empire, and Orange County.
Astigmatism is caused by asymmetric curvature of the cornea. Instead of being round like a marble, the corneal curvature is shaped like a football. Light is not sharply focused at any distance. Since the eye has two focal points, astigmatism most commonly occurs in either nearsightedness or farsightedness. Mixed astigmatism is an unusual type of astigmatism. In this case, one focal point is near and the other far.
Astigmatism is a very common condition, and, in fact, most people have it to some degree. While slight amounts do not usually affect vision, larger amounts can cause distorted or blurred vision and may cause discomfort.
The amount of astigmatism can be detected through a comprehensive eye exam at TriCounty Eye Institute, where Dr. Mark Schneider, one of the most experienced laser vision correction specialists in the country, can determine the best course of treatment, whether it be eyeglasses, contact lenses, or other appropriate methods.
