Say Goodbye to Blurred & Distorted Vision

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 Clompus Reto and Halscheid Vision - Exton in Exton 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, Clompus Reto and Halscheid Vision - Exton in Exton 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).

Front desk staff are polite and helpful. Dr. Halscheid is an excellent provider of eye care. He is ... professional, thorough, patient with any questions and so kind. Dale always helps me with issues with my glasses. She adjusted my progressive lens and today they are working better. Dr. Sherman recently took care of my husband in an emergency injury situation. She gave him excellent care and he recovered in 24 hours. I love this practice and have been going there for over 10 years. I would recommend anyone who needs eye care to go to Clompus and Reto in Exton or West Chester.

A day ago I called the office for an appointment and spoke with Wendy who told me she would try to f... it me in for an appointment as I had some discomfort in my eye and was getting concerned it was something serious. She lady fit me in the next evening as the last appointment for the day. Well I just wanted to thank Dr. Sherman for conducting a mini surgery on my eye tonight. No one wants to go to the eye doctor and hear you have a small metal object in your eye. I was very surprised and concerned when she told me the news. She followed promptly by saying “ But we are going to remove it right now.” Not what I was expecting but I have complete trust in Clompus, Reto & Halscheid Vision Associates. I have been a patient of Dr Reto’s for 35 years and of Dr. Clompus before that. If Dr.Sherman says we are going to take it out-it’s coming out! The procedure was done extremely well with the thorough explanations I have come to expect from every one of the Doctors who I have seen here. Dr. Sherman was amazing and I am writing to express my sincere thanks and appreciation for her professional skills and thorough examination after to make sure all was ok. I am fortunate to have such a practice in my neighborhood. I have had laser eye surgery to correct my vision through this practice which changed my life. Every person in my family from my grandmother to my children have been patients here. There is no one I would trust more with than Clompus, Reto & Halscheid Vision Associates with my sight. No one. Thanks Dr. Sherman. Thanks very much.
