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 Orgain Family Vision in Hendersonville 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, Orgain Family Vision in Hendersonville 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).

I agree with all the positive reviews below and would like to add one more reason to go there. They... are honest. Before I moved to the area, I was told by my provider that I needed cataract surgery. Dr Logan took one look and said I did not. He could have made some more money off of this and chose to be honest instead. All the staff there are great to work with, professional and pleasant. The glasses I get there are always good-looking and work perfectly for whatever I do, whether it's reading, computer or driving. I would highly refer them.

Dr. Smith is world-class, very patient, knowledgeable, and undoubtably has his patients well being a... s priority one. Even though my insurance company recently decided that Dr. Smith was not in network, I chose to stay with his practice. I get a very reasonable cash discount. Most importantly, I trust my eye health to be managed by Dr. Smith and not an insurance that dictates my vision based on the greed of shareholders.

After past visits to Sams Optical and what should be "America's Worst" instead of best, my family wa... s referred to Orgain Family Vision. Here we felt like actual patients and that our concerns were addressed appropriately instead of being rushed. The customer service provide was above excellent. Plus, we received rebates on our contacts which we had never received in the past at any other location!

I have been going to Dr Orgain since the early 80’s and each visit is always exceptional. I have h... is cell number and he has phoned in prescriptions even once as he was hiking the Grand Canyon. I now live south of Nashville but will continue to use Orgain because of the personal care and professionalism.
