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
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
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
Why can't i see at night with my contact lens? I have astigmatism and I've tried changing the lens
.I'm being corrected for farsighted and astigmatism. I see better without them night is even worse?
Im farsighted with a mild astigmatism (90) do I have to have my astigmatism collect when wearing contacts? I see clear without them night is awful
Im farsighted & astigmatism. My contacts are very blurry at night & during the day. The lenses are toric and don't seem dry. I see better w/out them.
Lately my eyes get horribly blurry at night (not in the dark). and its hard to keep them focused on anything Had eye exam: only astigmatism was found?
Saw a bit of a bright light at night in right eye . doesn't happen frequently . I don't get much sleep . Happened one other occasion near right eye. (Have pinched nerve & astigmatism in right eye) ?
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?
I have astigmatism & light sensitivity. I bought new glasses. Still have severe night time glare. Doc says eyes will adjust. Its been a month. Do I have to live with the glare? Visit another doctor?
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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?
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
