Astigmatism is one of the most commonly diagnosed optical conditions today at your trusted Washington DC optical shop. Unlike other more destructive diseases of the eye, astigmatism is an optical condition which develops naturally due to problems with optical growth since birth. This condition is genetic, and as such patients with a family history will often develop this problem. When the eye is not completely round, this causes a problem with the refraction of light into the eye. A perfectly round eye will allow the light, which carries important information for sight, to enter the retina without issue, where the information is translated into a perfect image. Eyes with astigmatism scatter this light across multiple parts of the retina, causing the information to be jumbled and lost, and forming a blurred image often at numerous distances.

Astigmatism is often diagnosed in young patients as it develops early. Parents with astigmatism should take care to book annual eye exams for their children, in order to insure children do not suffer from difficulties learning due to their inability to see notes in the classroom. Symptoms of astigmatism include distance vision that suffers from distorting waves or blurring, as well as fatigue, headaches, and optical pain due to eyestrain. Eyestrain happens from any undiagnosed optical illness, occurring when the eyes are being forced to work harder than they are accustomed to in order to see clearly. Headaches, fatigue while driving or reading at a distance, and pain in the eyes are common symptoms of eyestrain. Astigmatism can be easily treated through toric contact lenses or ophthalmic eyeglasses from your professional Washington DC optical shop.

When you feel sick you go to the doctor. When it’s time to go back to school, you take your child to get a check up. But how much attention do you give to two of the most precious, delicate things you own? We’re talking about your eyes. You only get two, and if you can read these words, you are lucky enough to have clear vision! That’s why here at Metropolitan Optical, our Washington DC opticians recommend you schedule eye examinations annually. Our eye care experts are skilled, experienced, and thorough, administering the proper tests and procedures in order to provide you and your whole family with healthy eyes for a lifetime.

Routine eye examinations help detect vision problems you may be suffering from, or not even realize. Some vision problems go undetected for a long time because the human brain has ways of making up for these kinds of errors, or even tricking your eyes. Going on with poor vision can be not only frustrating, but damaging to your everyday life. Children with better vision often do better in school than children with vision problems. After all, how can you excel when you can’t read the notes on the white board? Adults also benefit greatly from correcting vision: work, activities, driving, etc., can all improve with better vision.

Eye exams often also catch eye diseases and other health problems before any obvious signs appear. Many serious eye diseases (e.g., glaucoma, and macular degeneration) have no obvious symptoms early on. By the time you recognize something is off, it may be too late to start early treatment. Our Washington DC opticians understand the importance of catching and treating eye diseases and infections early, which is why we diligently stress the importance of these kinds of regular eye exams.

Having your eye exam is the first important step, and at Metropolitan Optical, we don’t stop there. We also offer contact lens fitting and evaluations, as well as eyeglasses and lenses, so you can leave our office seeing clearly and feeling great.

When caring for your eyes, you deserve only the best. Our Washington DC opticians have been providing top quality eye care for years, and epitomize ‘the best’ in optical care. Making an appointment with us is easy – simply call us at 202-730-9787, and be on your way to a healthier, clearer life.
