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 Anastasia Eye Associates in St. Augustine today!

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, Anastasia Eye Associates in St. Augustine has the perfect solution for your needs.

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).

While vacationing in beautiful St. Augustine my glasses got stepped on. They were badly bent and I ... was not sure they could even be straightened. Mr. Matt Lee took the challenge, even though the glasses were not made by Anastasia Eye Associates/The Vision Center. He repaired them and sent me on my way, and would not accept payment for his time or service. I am so very happy to recommend them to anyone and everyone! Thanks, Mr. Lee!

Visited Anastasia Eye Associates on A1A this morning to replace the pads on the nose piece on my gla... sses. Optical Manager Matt took great care of me. Replaced the pads at No Charge (wow) and also noticed one the screws on my lens was loose and fixed that too. That was pretty awesome. We r visiting from Wisconsin and he sure helped us out. Highly recommend them!!! Thanks Matt!!! Sue Rheingans

I broke my eyeglasses and I only have the one pair. I found out that my optometrist does not do rep... airs and wouldn't even fit me a new frame. I called Anastsia Eye Associates and the receptionist told me to come in so they could do an assessment. Matt Lee the Optician took over 30 minutes finding a frame to match my lenses as he could not repair my broken frames. He then put my current lenses in the new frames and made sure they fit me properly. I was so impressed! They are now my Optometrist and I have an appointment later this month for a full exam. Thank you so much!
