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 Blanco EyeWorks in North Central 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, Blanco EyeWorks in North Central has the perfect solution for your needs.

Dr. Kip and his staff are beyond reproach! Always pleasant and with the most up to date screening eq... uipment. I moved away from San Antonio 3 years ago and still use them for my glasses and contacts. Great people.

I've been seeing Dr. Kip for over 20 years. He and his staff are always so friendly. I started tak... ing my daughters to get their eyes checked and they took such good care of them. They always make us feel right at home like visiting family. Thanks Kip, Alex and Candy. We love your service!

Impressed by the doctor. I have been wearing glasses since age 4. I have had doctors that did not i... mpress me. This doctor has solutions for aging eyes. He also wears glasses and is older therefore he knows first hand about eye changes. The staff also were very cool 😎.

My family and I have been coming here since the mid 2000’s. We've always been happy customers. We... changed insurance plans a few years ago and unfortunately they weren’t in network. I tried a few places and there was no comparison. I realized very quick how spoiled I had been by the wonderful owners/staff at Blanco Eyeworks. Recently, I was frustrated with wearing the junky glasses I got with my vision benefit. A few months ago I had decided to make an appointment to buy a new pair and just pay for them myself when I thought to check if they were in network. And they were!!! I was SOOOO happy to walk in there and see the familiar faces and knew I was finally back in good hands! Four out of five people in my family got new glasses within a week as well. Dr. Kip knows his stuff & is always friendly and attentive. Alex is the most knowledgeable person I’ve ever encountered in this business. He always knows what will look best on me. I don’t even bother to look at the glasses anymore. I just let him bring me a few to try on. Nine out of ten times I end up getting the first pair he hands me. Same with the rest of my family. Bottom line…Quality glasses, attentive service.

Thank you Kip and Alex for being an amazing help to me, never needed or wanted glasses so bad until ... now and you guys made it very simple and did a great job on figuring out what I needed! I am very pleased with the service you guys offered and very happy with my frames!

Dr Kip runs one spectacular LOCAL business. The Blanco Eye Works team will be attentive and engaged ... throughout your entire stay. Expect a thorough eval, explanation, and plan from Dr Kip. In case eyewear is on your list, Alex has an outstanding selection. He also has a great eye to help pick out the perfect frames. Thumbs up!!

Service above and beyond! Plus, they’re a locally owned business to boot! Alex is awesome and goes... out of his way to help. My family will be life-long customers as long as they are around!!

My family has been going to Blanco Eyeworks for several years, and we've always had a great experien... ce. I'd highly recommend them!

I'm a huge proponent of supporting local businesses and this place is at the top of my list. I knew ... going into the office that it was time to get serious about my eyesight and pony up to what I really needed and not what my old college budget allowed. I felt right at home here with every staff interaction. The technology at this office is unreal, they have an imaging machine for your eye that looks like it's made by Ferrari. I'm glad to have found an office in my neighborhood I can trust and that treats me like part of the family. It's rare in this day and age to find this type of customer service. I can't thank Dr. Orbeck and his staff enough for all the help. I look forward to doing business with them for a long time to come!

If you ever need some new glasses, or just need to get your eyes checked. Dr. Kip Orbeck is the guy ... to see. Kip and his staff are awesome. They are so friendly and not pushy. Alex does his magic on making sure your glasses look perfect on you. I saw Dr Kip many years ago for some new glasses and later went back for sunglasses. When I was away from San Antonio for awhile I had lost my glasses and went to see another doctor. That doctor was no Kip Orbeck. He didn't really care much about my prescription and his staff was rude. Last year I turned 40 and I noticed my eyesight was changing on reading small letters. I decided I better get them checked. I went to see Dr Orbeck because I knew he would take care of me. He said I'm getting close to needing bifocals but not right now.( I feel old now haha) He never forced me to buy the bifocals until I really need them. Dr Kip Orbeck your awesome and so is your staff. You make it easier to getting my eyes checked. Sorry this so long. (This is the little guy that came in on Saturday)

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).
