If you have astigmatism, your team of experts at Aurora will work with you to decide on the best treatment options. During your eye exam, your ophthalmologist or optometrist will perform tests that will help pinpoint which treatment is right for you.
Astigmatism is usually corrected with eyeglasses or contact lenses. Two types of contacts can be used for astigmatism: soft toric lenses and rigid gas permeable lenses. In some cases, a surgeon may insert a permanent lens implant to correct the condition. Some people also have laser (refractive) eye surgery to correct their astigmatism.
