Astigmatism is one of the most common vision conditions; most people have some form of astigmatism. Astigmatism can be caused by an irregular shaped cornea or curvature of the lens, and can lead to blurred vision. Our examinations test for astigmatism using a phoropter and retinoscope, which measure refraction. Depending on the amount of astigmatism, we can provide eyeglasses or contact lenses to help correct your condition.
People who have trouble with their vision, both close up and far away may have the condition called presbyopia. If you are concerned that you may be suffering from presbyopia but really want to try contacts, it is really important to find someone who is skilled at fitting patients who are hard to fit. Our office will have special equipment to measure your cornea even better so you can have the best fit possible.
Here at Apple Eye Care, we are pleased to offer multifocal contact lenses. We will do everything we can to ensure they fit properly. Multifocal contact lenses are not your grandparents’ bifocals. They are designed to help people with presbyopia. Because multifocal contact lenses are more complex than normal contacts, it is important to have the perfect fit so you can see as well as possible. It may take a little extra time and cost a little bit more, but it is worth having good vision without needing your thick eyeglasses.
