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 Penn Eye Care in Willowbrook 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.
  • 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, Penn Eye Care in Willowbrook has the perfect solution for your needs.

Dr. Penn is honestly the best there is in his field. Trust me my eyes are a mess and he always gets ... my prescriptions correct. When he retires I am going to need him to see me at his house. It gives me anxiety just thinking about him retiring. 🙂

THIS. PLACE. IS. AMAZING. I had a bad experience with America’s Best Eye Care after three times I ... told them the prescription is off, slow shipping of glasses, contacts never showed up. So we cancelled that order and went with my bfs parents suggestion. At Penn Eye Care I was able to file out my form online, seen by the first eye assistant within 8mins (and we were early so we got in I believe even before my appointment time) I got actual pictures of my eyes (only an extra $40 and it shows if you even have diabetes or not! Technology!!) the gal, I didn’t catch her name but she was so sweet. She and no one else there shamed me for how old my contacts were, unlike how ABEC did… and Dr. Penn was amazing. They all could see I was struggling w seeing and confirmed AB gave me completely wrong prescriptions. I got DKNY glasses and eye care (w no insurance) even cheaper than AB and their non designer glasses and long wait time) my glasses came in the mail in, I kid you not, 5 days. And that includes weekend days. Going to pick up contacts and a pair of sunglasses (which if you get before the year end is 50% off even if you don’t buy it all at the same time) Richard Le helped us out with everything and was suuuper incredible. Hands down will never go anywhere else. I’m so happy to be able to see again and I won’t be missing those headaches lol. THANKS AGAIN!!! I’ll post a review on Facebook sometime after the contacts get ordered.

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).
