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.

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.
  • We’ll discuss all your treatment options so you can feel confident that you’ve chosen the best option for your visual needs and lifestyle.
  • 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, Eyetique - Downtown in Downtown has the perfect solution for your needs.

Excellent service and selection. Staff were so helpful and went beyond what I expected. Eyetique is ... fortunate to have the employees there especially in this era of diminished customer service and courtesy! My glasses are not easy to make and they are stylish and perfect. Well done Eyetique and staff!

Hands down, BEST experience I have had at an eye doctor in YEARS! My glasses/contact lens script is ... far from your "typical" one, so I was VEERRYY nervous and stressed out coming in because I did not know what to expect or what the doctor would say. Jamie at the front desk took the liberty to review my past eye history before the doctor even saw me, which helped a lot. I admit I did not know what to make of Dr Burke (at first), as he seemed to be a bit stand offish, but as the exam went on I began to feel more comfortable with him. He had absolutely zero judgement as to how my prescription was. Jamie was very efficient in explaining cost and shocked me by saying that I could order trial contact lenses but did not have to put anything down, money-wise. Was a big culture shock for me, being that past practices have wanted the money for contact lenses and glasses up front. My contacts and glasses have always been really expensive. All I had to pay was a copay. I could go on and on, but all in all, wonderful experience! So thank you Eyetique staff!

GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE EXPERIENCE AT EYETIQUE Many years ago I purchased a IC! Berlin frame for my ... glasses at the Murray Avenue Eyetique location. I loved this manufacturer’s ingenious frame design, and they soon became my favorite glasses to wear. I only seemed to wear the other glasses when I misplaced these – I had to use something to see so that I could find them. Recently, the time had come for new lenses. I returned to Eyetique and selected a different but similar IC! Berlin frame. This frame was similar but more streamlined and delicate. I thought they’d work fine. That proved not to be the case. Within less than three months after purchase the frames broke. The frame section called the “arm” or “temple” separated and fell to the ground while I was walking. There was no way of knowing where I lost it. I soon realized that this frame design could not be trusted. I returned to Eyetique to with my newly purchased glasses less one arm and explained what happened to Melissa Kelly, Eyetique’s Project Manager. She heard my concerns, quickly assured me that these glasses would be replaced no questions asked. I then selected another IC Berlin frame and picked them up today. I knew right away when I put them on that this frame design was far superior and that they would be trouble free. After leaving Eyetique with these new glasses I was completely satisfied with no lingering concerns. Through my personal experience, I would recommend a trip to Eyetique for your future eye exam and eyeglass purchases. Geoff

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).
