Are air optix lenses for astigmatism and night time use?

Air optix lenses: These lenses can be used for day or night vision. But i would not recommend anyone to sleep with any kind of lenses on chronic basis because of the potential risks of corneal infection. I advise to either use daily lenses and remove prior to sleeping or take out and clean well before leaving them overrnight in a solution prescribed by the lens manufacturer. ...Read more

Does astigmatism have anything to do with seeing at night?

Does astigmatism have anything to do with seeing at night?

Yes.: Astigmatism has to do with an individual seeing at night or day if the individual has astigmatism. The astigmatism must be corrected with the use of either spectacles or toric soft contact lenses or rigid gas permeable contacts in order to obtain one's best corrected vision. Astigmatism results when the eye, rather than being spherical, is more shaped like a football with two different curvatures. ...Read more

Does astigmatism have anything to do with a tough time seeing at night?

Does astigmatism have anything to do with a tough time seeing at night?

Yes: At night, the pupil dilates to let in more light. Astigmatism is a distortion in the cornea that causes different focal lengths for light passing through different parts of the cornea into the lens. With a small aperture (constricted pupil), the differences do not cause noticeable blurring. At night, when the aperture is larger, the eye has less depth of field, so the imprecise focus. ...Read more

May be benign: pressure on the eye can cause this, as well as changes in the retina, and migraines. It is not likely that your other conditions caused this. If your sight is ok, no need for alarm. ...Read more

I have trouble seeing while driving at night and when it rains. I have an astigmatism in both eyes. What can I do to help with my poor vision driving?

I have trouble seeing while driving at night and when it rains. I have an astigmatism in both eyes. What can I do to help with my poor vision driving?

Wear eyeglasses: I assume that you have visited an ophthalmologist to get a proper prescription for eyeglasses. This should be all you need to see well at night. Your examination will determine if there is another problem causing your night vision problems. ...Read more

At night saw a bit of light near right eye (astigmatism in that one) I don't get much sleep due to my anxiety + pinched nerve in neck . plus back is tense . What is this?

Eye lights: Was it from inside the eye or outside the eye? Was the eye touched or rubbed? Did it go away when on of the eyes was closed? These questions may help to sort out the cause. An eye exam can also be helpful when this is a recurrent phenomenon. ...Read more

Glare: Glare can be due to many things besides astigmatism-- you may have a cataract, you may have other eye problems--- some people will use slightly tinted glasses for night driving-- others will use special mirrors that dim down with oncoming headlights from behind-- it is ok to get another opinion from another doc, but first, make sure the glasses were made correctly... ...Read more

I have an astigmatism in my right eye , the eye doctor said only need to wear my glasses at night when I'm driving Can I get lazy eye or blind worried?

I have an astigmatism in my right eye , the eye doctor said only need to wear my glasses at night when I'm driving Can I get lazy eye or blind worried?

No: You obviously have a very minor astigmatism. Many people, some of the nicest and brightest (inc. me, ahem!) have much worse astigmatism which is correctable with glasses. It does not cause lazy eye or blindness. ...Read more

What is astigmatism?

What is astigmatism?

Astigmatism: Astigmatism is one type of refractive error. Myopia (or nearsightedness), hyperopa (or farsightedness), and astigmatism all can cause refractive error. Refractive error is what causes a patient to require glasses or contact lenses to see better. Astigmatism is typically when the cornea is shaped more like a football than a basketball. Glasses, contact, and LASIK can fix this problem. ...Read more

What is astigmatism?

Corneal curvature: Astigmatism just means that your cornea is not perfectly spherically shaped and instead has different curvatures in different directions (kind of like a football in the extreme example). Everyone has some degree of astigmatism although not everyone has enough to notice it. I doubt you "need" any surgery. ...Read more

How bad is astigmatism?

How bad is astigmatism?

Usually not: Astigmatism is a physical curvature aspect of the cornea and lens of the eye which in effect makes the eye oval. The term astigmatism is from physics and is not usually a bad thing. The correction is a reverse oval in the eyeglasses or contacts. Most astigmatism is small and easily corrected. Sometimes it is large or irregular and that make perfect vision difficult. See your ophthalmologist. ...Read more

Eye growth: Mosty astigmatism is due to the way the eye develops as it grows and is due to differential growth in one axis causing an ovalness of the need for glasses. Some astigmatism can also be from eye trauma. ...Read more
