Have you been diagnosed as having astigmatism, and are concerned about the care your eyes need in order to see clearly? Astigmatism is unlike any other hereditary optical condition, and can often cause a severe level of vision loss over time. However, the latest advances in optical technology have allowed for more ways to treat optical conditions than ever before. Patients can always find the state of the art astigmatism correction they need to see clearly no matter what level of this condition they are suffering from with TORIC lenses from your local optical store in Fordham at Urban Eyes.
Astigmatism is a hereditary optical condition that causes a refraction error where the light is refracted to multiple areas of the retina, instead of one direct beam of information. This causes the information carried by the light to become scattered, creating a blurred image at various distances. In patients with astigmatism the eye is not perfectly round, but is shaped more akin to the back of a spoon. In other vision problems the prescription on your lens is spread evenly throughout to provide vision correction. However, unlike myopia and hyperopia, astigmatism contact lenses need to be made with a special weighted system which prevents the contact lens from spinning and insures the right levels of prescription are always in the correct position to give the patient visual clarity. This allows for proper light refraction in the directions which your unique cause of astigmatism needs in order to see clearly. In the past, patients with astigmatism were often limited in their options with anything other prescription eyeglasses, but today your professional optical store in Fordham works to provide a wide selection of the latest toric lenses in soft styles that are so comfortable you may often forget you are wearing them at all. These lenses work to correct the shape of the eye itself, and thusly it is important to insure your lenses allow for maximum oxygen for healthy eyes and comfortable vision. For patients with more severe levels of astigmatism, a rigid gas permeable may be better suited to your needs in providing improved visual clarity over the limits of soft contact lenses.
