Why Would Doc Say I Have The Worst Case Of Astigmatism She Has Ever Seen
Heavy handed: Asitgmatism is an ovalness of the optical parts of the eye which requires a reverse oval to correct in the eyeglasses or contacts used to correct it. It is common and in some cases can be quite extreme. Perhaps your doc is inexperienced, has not seen many cases and you are the worst. Or perhaps your doc is a little insensitive and overreacting to things. A second opinion can be helpful. ...Read more
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

Will my astigmatism get worse if I don't wear my glasses? My primary care physician referred me to an ophthalmologist after I developed chronic headaches about 10 years ago. I was told I had a slight astigmatism and while it wasn't affecting my sight in
No evidence: Astigmatism is due to irregular corneal curvature usually. Wearing glasses is unlikely to affect astigmatism. Because hard contact lenses can change the shape of the cornea, not wearing them will allow the cornea to revert to its original curvature. So not wearing your contacts might result in slight worsening of astigmatism. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
20/20 vision all my life, suddenly doc says20/50 & astimatism n both eyes. Really? Is this possible? If so, y?
Lens Changes: It is not uncommon that individuals with excellent vision hitting their late forties-early fifties suddenly develop blurred vision. It is often related to lens changes that are progressing to early cataracts. The prescription changes can take the form of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and/or astigmatism. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends on why: Most patients with astigmatism can be fit with contact lenses, either soft toric ones or gas permeable ones. If you cannot wear contacts, you need to understand why you cannot. Some reasons can be corrected to permit contact lens wear. You might consider a second opinion by a contact lens specialist. ...Read more
Do all toric contacts correct both astigmatism and myopia? Some of them say they are for astigmatism and don't mention nearsightedness.
Exaggerated: Astigmatism is typically when you're cornea is more football shaped than spherical, but it is only slightly in that shape. We describe it as football shape so patients understand better. Even with severe astigmatism, your cornea will still 'look' round to you with your bare naked eye. ...Read more
Would needing glasses cause of astigmatism cause u to have a weird lightheaded feeling n swaying at time 6 yrs 24/7 my eye dr says no anx cause funny?
Probably not a cause: The need for astigmatism correction will not cause any symptom except blurred vision. WEARING the correction in glasses is another issue. People can get a lightheaded or swimming sensation and possibly distortion of vision with certain types of glasses prescriptions. These symptoms might also be dependent on how the glasses are made (centration, curvature). Contact lenses minimize these symptoms. ...Read more
I've had ghosting in my eye for mnths now, had eye exam today, doctor says everything normal except slight astigmatism. Says ghosting is normal. True?
The big question is "Did the ghosting resolve when the
Astigmatism was fully corrected with refraction"? If so, that's your solution to wear corrective spectacles or contacts if you're bothered by the ghosting. Astigmatism is common and affects visual quality, depending on how much. The other, nonrefractive causes include corneal scar, cataract, & macular problems. ...Read more
