Contacts for Astigmatism
At ValuVision, we strive to find you the best vision correction for your vision needs. Sometimes, the better option is contact lenses over glasses, although we always recommend having a back up pair of glasses. Instances where this is the case includes keratoconus (a cone-shaped cornea), a large degree of difference in prescription between the eyes, and for sports. Specially designed contact lenses are usually needed in these cases. Also, for cosmetic or corrective reasons, a special contact lens may need to be designed for a patient. Read more »

When soft contact lenses do not correct a patient’s vision to an acceptable point and they have a moderate degree of astigmatism, rigid gas permeable(or RGP) lenses are a much better option. First and foremost, any patient suspected of having keratoconus, and not simply astigmatism, should have a mapping of the corneal surface done, which is a corneal topography. This locates all of the irregular areas on the front of the eye which would prevent a contact lens from fitting well. Knowing where these areas are is crucial for the doctor to design a contact lens to properly fit the patient’s eyes. Read more »

Bifocals are glasses or contact lenses that have two prescriptions in each lens that help people see objects both near and far. People with conditions such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism (all over blurry vision) and more commonly presbyopia (vision problems caused by aging) are typically prescribed bifocals or multifocals.
At one time, anyone requiring the use of bifocals had no choice but to wear glasses. It wasn’t until the last couple decades that people who needed bifocals had the option of choosing bifocal contact lenses. Read more »
I am often asked by parents what is the “right” age for a child to start wearing contact lenses. The answer is there really isn’t a “right” age. It mostly depends on the child’s maturity and personal hygiene. Parents, themselves, are usually the better judge of this than I am. Also, a child must be motivated to try them. Sports, improved self-confidence, and nearsighted progression (increasing) are all good reasons for children to be in contact lenses instead of glasses.
I think most times parents and optometrists discount how responsible children can be with contact lenses. A study done by Jeffrey Walline of Ohio State University found that children Read more »
As an optometrist, I often hear people complain about eyestrain at work. With the amount of computer work people do these days, it’s no wonder. Some of the most common complaints from patients are tired or sore eyes, headaches that center around the eyes or at the back of the neck, burning or watering eyes. These symptoms of eyestrain do not necessarily come from using computers. Anything that requires long periods of up-close focusing can cause these symptoms, like reading, video games, even homework. Though that is not an excuse for your teenagers to get out of doing their daily assignments! Read more »
