Astigmatism

Feb. 5, 2019

AstigmatismAstigmatism is a common vision complains that can be hereditary or acquired. It occurs when the cornea is irregularly shaped, which prevents light from focusing properly on the retina. Instead of the cornea having a round shape, it is shaped more like a football, with one meridian being significantly more curved than the other.

Signs and symptoms of astigmatism may include: blurred or distorted vision, eyestrain or discomfort, headaches, difficulty with night vision, and squinting.

Astigmatism often occurs early in life, so it is important to schedule an eye exam for your child to avoid vision problems in school from uncorrected astigmatism. Astigmatism can be corrected with eyeglasses, contact lenses, or surgery. Individual lifestyles affect the way astigmatism is treated.

This was my fist time with Dr Giannie... and it was an amazing one . My son was recomended by his pediatrician to go see the eye doctor and we came here . We had an appointment and we didn’t have to wait long . They where very professional and nice to my son and i . The doctor was very good at explaining everything and recommending different things for my son’s eye care . The process of getting the glasses was also fast and she was amazing at recommending the type of glasses my son needs in order for them to last longer. Overall it was a great experience and i will definitely be back for him and in the future for myself. Thank you doctor.read more

Avoid the disappointment. I now have a... pair of glasses that I paid for and cannot wear, they will not even give me a partial credit on them. I took them back to get fixed once and they got them wrong again, they want me to keep coming back and wasting my time. Even if this was "a lab issue", they need to stand behind their products and vendors and make things right.Mind you, this is not my only time at the practice, I have been loyal to this doctor since she worked at Macy's optical. Also, once you bring a problem to their attention, all they do is deny it so I am sure they will try to deny what I'm saying. I started being disappointed with this place because I liked to go see the doctor that owns the practice, but they kept making appointments with her and then calling me to say she wouldn't be in, this happened 3 times and another time they allowed me to come in and sit there and wait, until I realized the doctor was not in.I ended up coming back another day and seeing their other "highly recommended" doctor, she was disappointing. They couldn't even give me my prescription that day and said they would fax it but the new doctor was very good at telling me how I should buy the contacts through them. They kept faxing over the incorrect prescription and I had to get 1800-contacts to call them and get the right one.Don't waste your time and money.read more
