Astigmatism and Presbyopia

Some of us deal with common vision problems, such as Astigmatism, where you experience blurred vision due to your eye not focusing light evenly on your retina. Other Astigmatism symptoms you may experience are eye strain, headaches, trouble seeing, and driving at night.

If you have an Astigmatism, it can usually be corrected by either prescription eyeglasses, contact lenses, or LASIK. With that being said, we are here to walk you through your treatment options for your Astigmatism, as well as finding what best fits you and your lifestyle.


Farsightedness is quite the opposite of being able to see things from far away, rather you struggle seeing things that are close to you. Also, the degree to which you are farsightedness can have an impact on how your eyes are able to focus. Farsightedness can be corrected either by glasses or contact lenses. So if your contact lenses or contacts begin with plus numbers, such as +2.50, you are farsighted. If you are wanting a more aggressive approach to fix your eyesight, LASIK is always an option, but you should always consult an optometrist before proceeding with the procedure. 


Presbyopia is a gradual, age-related loss of the eyes ability to focus on nearby objects. Usually presbyopia becomes common in one’s early to mid-40s and continues to worsen until around 65 years old. The symptoms you may experience if you have Presbyopia are having to hold reading material at an arm’s length to make what we are seeing clearer, experiencing blurred vision at normal reading distance, and dealing with eye strain after reading. Also, in rare cases, one with Presbyopia may experience headaches.

If you do have or end up being diagnosed with Presbyopia, it can be corrected either by prescription or nonprescription eyeglasses, contact lens, and rarely any surgery is done to fix this eye condition. 

Whether you have astigmatism, farsightedness or presbyopia, we are well versed in these various eye conditions and can help you when it comes to getting you seeing clearly again.
