Astigmatism is an eye condition that is caused by a cornea or lens that is stretched into an irregular shape. Rather than being round, the astigmatism patient will have an oblong cornea. This leads to refractive errors, which can cause light to be distorted as it enters the eyes. This makes the images appear blurry.
Children with astigmatism and adults could have trouble reading text or seeing fine details in near and far away objects.
If you have astigmatism, it used to be that wearing soft contact lenses was difficult. But these days, there are toric contacts for astigmatism that Dr. Paul Super can prescribe for you. This helps to provide the proper orientation for the lenses regularly and offer better visual acuity. You also should have a faster fitting and spend less time at your eye doctor.
If you have been saying “I need an eye exam near me’ recently to get fitted for toric contact lenses, Dr. Paul Super can help you right away. During your eye exam at his LA office, Dr. Super will check to see if you have astigmatism. This condition frequently occurs with other vision problems, such as myopia and hyperopia.
Together, these vision issues are referred to generally as refractive errors because they affect how the eyes can bend light.
In many cases, Dr. Super can provide you with special contact lenses to correct your astigmatism. In a few cases, he can recommend a corneal procedure called an orthokeratology. This is a painless procedure where you wear several specially designed contact lenses to change the shape of your cornea.
Dr. Paul Super’s office does accept VSP coverage. For individuals, plans can start as low as $13 per month. Some workers also have VSP coverage through their employer. With this insurance coverage, you have access to advanced eye exams, many bonus offers, and access to many high-quality eye frame brands.
