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 The Eyewear Gallery at Reston Town Center in Reston 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, The Eyewear Gallery at Reston Town Center in Reston 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).

I had a bit of an issue with a screw coming out of my frames last night. I came to this store today... based on the reviews I saw here and I was not dissapointed. The staff was very friendly and my main man Fred fixed my frames in about 5 minutes. Top notch place. Highly recommend!

Great selection of high quality eyewear, and Jackie was super kind and patient in helping me adjust ... a pair of my sunglasses that had a bent frame. Would 100% recommend coming here for all your optical needs.

Great experience at this lovely little shop. I was 100% that customer who takes forever to pick a fr... ame and worries about every penny spent...AND didn't have an appointment (🤭)..but Jackie and Casey were generous with knowledge, super patient and wonderfully charming despite me taking an embarassingly long time to choose (there were so many cute pairs-- shockingly in my price range). I finally found the perfect pair when all was said and done and felt so great about it. In this economy you wanna feel good when you have to make significant purchases-- I'm so glad I chose this Reston gem for my prescription lenses today!

I went to the eyewear gallery for dry eye treatment. The OptiLight treatment has transformed the hea... lth of my eyes. Before the treatment I was using artificial tears all day every day, and now I've been able to stop medicated eye drops and hardly use tears. Dr. Gammon went the extra mile and treated my facial rosacea as well, which has significantly reduced my redness and flair up discomfort. I am so grateful that Dr. Gammon added this treatment to her practice. Really appreciate all that you guys do!

Had a truly incredible experience here solely due to Jackie. She made sure I was comfortable and end... ed up in the right pair for me, even as picky as I was! She provided excellent guidance and personal opinion, something vital in the glasses try on process. I will absolutely be back here and plan to switch to this office for my next eye exam because of how amazing the buying frames experience was!

Conveniently located near the RTC pavilion next to FedEx and directly across from North Italia resta... urant. The screws came out of my glasses so I called to see if they could help me. The receptionist said a technician was available immediately so I went right away. Jackie was friendly, extremely helpful and professional. She replaced the screws in 5 minutes, something I couldn't do at home and trust me I tried! This shop is all about customer service and has a wide variety of stylish and functional frames on display. There is an Optometrist on site for all of your needs. I wish every business were as friendly, courteous and professional as The Eyewear Gallery at Reston Town Center! 5 out of 5 stars for sure!

Came by for an adjustment fit for my new glasses that I purchased elsewhere and the woman (forgot to... get her name) that helped me was very friendly, nice, helpful and knowledgeable. The other two women there were nice and pleasant as well. The store itself has a great atmosphere and aesthetics. Highly recommended!

Jackie is very friendly, very knowledgeable, and very helpful!! I had spoken with her a couple of ti... mes over the phone before visiting The Eyewear Gallery. She is/was always very patient, and very kind with me answering all my questions. Today morning we visited her at the store and Wow!! Phenomenal service we received from her. My son was very happy to meet her. She has absolutely a great personality!! She was thorough during the whole process and spent as much as needed time without rushing us. After that I ended up calling her this afternoon as I was a little confused with one thing. Even though she was busy, she promptly assisted me to resolve my issue. Thank You so much Jackie for everything!! We truly Appreciate it!! Always a pleasant experience with you in-person/on phone!! Also the other staff I briefly talked with over the phone/in-person at this store were equally supportive and quick too!! Overall Great Assistance!! I'm glad I found YOU!! HIGHLY recommendation to this business !!
