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 Omni Vision - Potranco in Far West Side 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, Omni Vision - Potranco in Far West Side has the perfect solution for your needs.

Very helpful and quick. The doctor was super knowledgeable and actually wanted to teach me what was ... going on with my eyes. that was a first for me. I will for sure come back. My only small complaint and its not the staff or doctors fault is i am still waiting on my glasses to come in. 2-3 weeks is a long time.

Great experience. Omni Vision had last minute appointment availability, even when I needed to resche... dule the night before. Their on-line scheduling is also very user-friendly. The best part is the staff. From the front office staff to the optometrist...they are professional, courteous, friendly and have outstanding customer service. They treat you with the upmost respect, explain everything in layman's terms amd make sure your needs are met. Thank you for the great service!

Omni Vision @ the 9218 Potranco location is my preferred location. All of the staff are friendly, ki... nd & informative, we never felt rushed, or uncomfortable. Too often you enter a facility for appointments & get the sense the employees are angry just by the sight of another human beings presence. So Bravo to Omni Vision for selecting great staff. We met Dr. Sundip Patel for the first time & again exceptional experience. Too often we leave reviews when the experience is unsatisfactory & forget to honor ppl when they do a great job. Dr. Patel was engaging, informative, explained the process & objective; he took his time throughout the examination without flipping the settings so fast you become confused what is what; too often I leave my eye appointments knowing I guessed my way through the exam, then your contacts & glasses are terrible bc you & your doctor wasn’t on the same page. So I appreciated the unorthodox explanations & suggestions in maintaining our vision. Great job!

The military sent me off-base for my annual exam and I’m so glad I found this place!! Dr. Garza wa... s amazing! She was all business at first, but she really took her time explaining why I was having certain vision issues and she gave me several options when choosing how to deal with them. I’ve been wearing glasses my whole life and this was a Top 3 exam because there was so much education. I have a lot of questions, if you just wanna get in and out, I’m sure she could do that too! When she finished with me, she handed me off to George who was also patient with me as I asked 1,001 questions. I didn’t get the technician’s name who helped me out at the beginning, but she was very kind too! Just be aware that there’s only a 5-minute grace period, so don’t be late!!

first time here and will be returning. Dr. Marquez is very thorough, and extremely patient. the staf... f is very nice. I'm very picky and chose like 6 different lenses to try on. but the staff grabbed one for me and i ended up with the one he selected. He just knew which one would work for me. i left there knowing i came to the right vision place. great selection on frame!

Dr.Marquez is worth the wait. He is professional, patient and kind. I never had an eye doctor explai... n eye health to me so well.

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).
