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.

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, Olathe Family Vision in Olathe has the perfect solution for your needs.

I can not say ENOUGH about Dr. Wayne. He is just first rate. We have used him for all our eye needs.... From the kids who just get annual visits with 20/20 Vision, to myself needing first time reading glasses in my 40’s, to all things Vision Therapy. We moved here from Colorado where Vision Therapy was quite common and many offices were licensed in it and a number of my friends availed themselves and their children to the unique training and quality Vision therapy brings to the learning table. Dr. Wayne was the first office (and one of the only offices) I found in the greater Kansas City area 7 years ago and we’ve never looked elsewhere. His rapport with Children is wonderful. He’s articulate and well educated. He makes a person feel quite at ease. Anxiety to new situations can be a thing in my home. I am super grateful for his expert care and his gentle attention to detail. Highly recommend him and his office!

Very nice and pleasant staff. I saw Dr. Broddous. He was excellent too. Thorough and patient. I was ... very pleased and comfortable with my visit. My family and I will return for our visits. Thank you!!

We saw Dr. Hemphill and the Vision Therapist. The testing was extensive and utilized many modalities... to accurately access what was going on. Not only were they very kind to me and my son, they were exceedingly thorough and knowledgeable. They did a great job of working with my son who is struggling with focusing and tracking, as a result, reading is very challenging. Not only did they offer a lot of hope but they navigated the fact that he was nervous and a bit embarrassed by his inability to read well, very nicely. They helped him realize what his eyes and brain were doing were not in his control but there were exercises and techniques that could help him. He left very buoyed for the first time in years. I anticipate getting a detailed write up in the mail with suggestions on how to proceed. Can not recommend them enough!

Dr. Hemphill is a very friendly and knowledgeable optometrist. He really SEES the big picture. But s... eriously, great staff. Competent doctors. I don't always go to an eye doctor, but when I do, I go to Olathe Family Vision.

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).
