78418 Astigmatism

Astigmatism is a refractive condition in which the shape of your cornea causes light to be unevenly bent, which results in blurry vision at all distances. Fortunately, a pair of prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses correct it. At Malouf Eye Clinics, we’re pleased to treat astigmatism so that you can see your best.

Your cornea is supposed to be circular, and under normal circumstances, it is. With 78418 astigmatism, it becomes more spoon shaped. As light enters your eyes, the cornea directs it to the retina at the back of your eye. The uneven refraction of light that is caused by this condition is often present in addition to either nearsightedness or farsightedness, or both. If you do notice that your vision is blurry or wavy, you should schedule an appointment to come in promptly. However, in many cases, 78418 astigmatism is diagnosed as part of your yearly routine comprehensive eye exam at our office. In either instance, our eye doctor assesses the severity of your vision deficiency, and writes the appropriate prescription to address it. This may be bifocal or trifocal lenses to treat multiple refractive conditions. Our optical department then puts that prescription into a pair of lenses, either for eyeglasses or contacts, depending on your preferences. Over time, your needs will probably change, and your prescription will be updated to account for that. This is a big reason why we suggest that you come in once per year for an eye exam. You should always be experiencing the best vision that you’re capable of achieving.

There is no reason why you should have to deal with 78418 astigmatism because counteracting its effects is a simple matter of getting the proper corrective eyewear. Please reach out to us today and let us book a time for you to come in and be seen by our eye doctor.

Comprehensive eye tests and vision exams are an important part of everyone’s health. At Malouf Eye Clinics, we perform comprehensive tests for early diagnosis of eye conditions and to check for symptoms or problems that can arise due to eye diseases. Routine eye exams should happen once every year or every other year and are important due to the fact that some eye diseases can only be detected during a routine exam with our ophthalmologist in Corpus Christi.

Our eye exam includes a refraction for contact lenses and a complete eyeglass fitting if needed. Our full service optical department and professional eyewear consultants are trained to help you choose the right frames for you. We offer designer frames as well as budget frames, contact lenses for disposable and extended wear, as well as color changing contact lenses. Our selection is also affordable, and we pride ourselves on being able to find the perfect blend of style and affordability in our glasses for each of our patients. We know our patients all have their own unique style and face shape, which is why we take the time to help you pick out frames that fit your facial structure and style. Ask our ophthalmologist in Corpus Christi about how you can get a new pair of glasses today, and for our specials.

Our contact lens exam is designed to fit patients for hard or soft contact lenses. Thanks to advances in the optical field, almost everyone is now a candidate for contacts, including those with astigmatism. Those who wear bifocal or multifocal lenses can now also have contact lens prescriptions. Our contact lenses come in a wide variety of brands and types to suit everyone’s needs, such as hard and soft lenses. Soft lenses are the most commonly prescribed by our ophthalmologist in Corpus Christi due to their comfort level, while hard contact lenses, better known as gas-permeable or GP lenses, offer sharper vision.
