Have you been told you have astigmatism?

Are constant headaches and eyestrain impacting your life?

Astigmatism is a common eye condition characterized by an irregular curvature of the cornea that causes blurry, fuzzy, or distorted vision.

While astigmatism can certainly be a nuisance, there is no reason to suffer from it. It can be easily corrected with eyeglasses, contact lenses, or laser eye surgery.

For astigmatism treatment, contact Memorial Eye Center - Meyerland in Southwest Houston today!

Give Your Eyes the Care They Deserve

How We Can Help

normal eye and eye with astigmatism

  • Come in for an eye exam and we’ll determine what type of lens correction will offer you the clearest vision possible.

  • During your follow-up visit, we’ll make sure that you’re comfortable with your new eyewear and we'll check that your new lenses are providing you with crisp, clear vision.

4 Ways to Treat Astigmatism

  • Prescription eyeglasses

    Mild to moderate levels of astigmatism can often be corrected with eyeglasses that contain a unique optical power (cylinder) to combat blurry vision caused by astigmatism.

  • Toric contact lenses

    Toric contact lenses are customized to your corneal shape and contain varying corrective powers throughout the lens. These soft contact lenses provide clear, sharp vision for people with mild to moderate astigmatism.

  • Scleral contact lenses

    Scleral contact lenses are ideal for moderate to severe astigmatism. These specialized rigid lenses are designed to arch over your irregular shaped cornea and rest on your sclera (the white part of your eye), to deliver clear vision.

  • Laser eye surgery

    If you’re looking to free yourself from eyeglasses and contact lenses, laser eye surgery offers permanent astigmatism correction. Candidacy for laser eye surgery depends on your age, and the type and severity of your astigmatism.

No matter your level of astigmatism, Memorial Eye Center - Meyerland in Southwest Houston has the perfect solution for your needs.

Any issues I had were immediately fixed. When I told her one eye did not see as clearly as the other, she took me back to the room, ran some tests, and was quickly able to make the adjustment. The lady fitting glasses is very good too. I have a high prescription so the lenses are quite heavy. It took several visits to find a light enough frame and adjust it so that it wouldn't press down on my nose. The lady was very patient and made sure I was comfortable with my glasses. I know some other places the staff would be lazy to adjust the glasses and tell the customer to go somewhere else, but the people here are very responsible, patient, and skillful at adjusting glasses. I was getting both contacts and glasses, but I could only use my insurance for either frames or contacts but not both. Dr. Wong and other staff wrote down all the pricings for me, whether I get monthly or daily contacts, whether I get year supply, half year, 3 months, whether I use my insurance for frames or contacts, how much I pay after insurance and rebates, etc. It was hard to make a decision at first, but Dr. Wong and staff neatly wrote down all the pricings and helped me find the most cost-effective option. Anyways, the people here are very professional and I recommend this place to everyone.

Astigmatism Diagnosis Treatment FAQs

What does astigmatism do to your eyes?

Astigmatism occurs when either the cornea or the lens inside the eye has mismatched curves, causing the eye surface to be egg-shaped rather than round.

While astigmatism causes blurry vision at all distances, it can also cause:

  • Wavy or distorted vision
  • Eye strain
  • Headaches
  • Squinting
  • Poor night vision
How do you fix astigmatism?

If you have astigmatism, corrective lenses (contacts or glasses) specifically designed for astigmatic eyes are an effective way to correct your blurry vision. They contain your optical prescription along with a specific cylinder lens power to target astigmatism and provide you with crystal clear vision. Laser surgery is another effective option to correct astigmatism.

Why has my astigmatism worsened?

About 20% of babies are born with astigmatism. In most cases, it disappears by around age 5. In others, astigmatism can become permanent and even worsen over time, generally stabilizing once the eyes reach their adult size (at around age 20).
