Astigmatism Treatment in Chicago, IL

At Eye Society, our eye doctors are able to diagnose and treat any number of eye and vision conditions. Astigmatism, which refers to an abnormal shape or curvature of the eye's lens, is one of the most common conditions we treat in our two area locations. If you're looking to have astigmatism treated in Chicago with eye doctors you can trust, you've come to the right place.

How Our Chicago Eye Doctor Can Help

The first step our Chicago eye doctor will want to take is to confirm your diagnosis of astigmatism. This can be done using a comprehensive eye and vision examination in our office, which allows us to assess the surface of each eye's lens and detect irregularities in curvature (which would indicate astigmatism).

In most cases, astigmatism can be successfully corrected or treated using specialized prescription lenses. These corrective lenses can be made in the form of traditional eyeglasses or even contact lenses, depending on your specific needs and lifestyle. These lenses work by compensating for the curvature of the eye and redirecting light into the lens of the eye properly.

This treatment, in turn, can correct the vision problems often associated with astigmatism for as long as you're wearing your corrective lenses. For those with astigmatism who wish to wear contact lenses, specialty lenses may be required to ensure a proper and comfortable fit, but we can handle this in our office.
