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.

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, Eyes on Lincoln - O Street Eyecare in Hartley 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’ve been going to Eyes On Lincoln, since I moved to Lincoln Nebraska 7 years ago, the service was... so great I didn’t feel the need to look any farther.

New patient here! So far today was my first visit/exam. I called yesterday knowing it may take a bit... to get in, so when they called back having an opening today I jumped on it. My favorite frames broke and I was about due for an exam anyways. Going in I was greeted right away. I made sure to show up ten minutes early to get the paperwork out of the way (which wasn't bad at all and the front desk did good explaining it all.) Right when my appointment time showed, I was being called back already. First time not needing to wait compared to other places in town! With the updated technology since my last exam, it was pretty new to me but they did so great taking the time to explain each piece of equipment, and answering my random questions. When I got to the last room to be met by Dr. Weber, again I only sat for maybe five minutes tops. He showed me my scans and finished the exam. When I explained my concern of wanting to find frames similar in weight more than the looks, he introduced me to someone who knew exactly what would fit best for me. In total I was in and out in about 40 minutes. For me that's the quickest it's been. Glasses should be in in about 2 weeks which is normal for any place, will do a fitment then and give update.

I have came here for years up from a teen until an adult. I now have a 10 year old who is practicall... y blind and a serial glasses breaker 😂 I was so stressed about how to get him more glasses before school because we were just there Renee (sorry if I misspelled your name) made it so easy for me and was very patient with me. I thank you it’s enough stress I have to come in every couple of months so her being so helpful and kind definitely relieved me of some of my stress! Thank you and you definitely made my day!

I can’t say enough of how professional they have been from start to finish. Mikayla the contact le... ns specialist was knowledgeable and pleasant to deal with. Steve is a master of his craft! It’s refreshing to have such an experience after having a horrible experience with Americas “best” I was referred to Steve and Eyes on Lincoln! Best in the business

I love how persistent they are with reminding you on appointments, and making sure you’re getting ... taken care of. For someone like me who is very forgetful, and tend to push off appointments, I appreciate them being kind to me & giving friendly reminders. The O street location, has a elderly lady, who shows so much compassion for the patients and helping in anyway she can. Unfortunately, I forgot her name. 🙁 BUT you’ll definitely see her when you go to pick out your glasses. She’s too sweet to miss! Thank you for working with me with my insurance & be a great place to go to for eye care!

Dr.Gilsersleeve is one of the best eye doctors in Nebraska. My experience was great, I didn't feel ... rushed, and my expectations were met as I didn't leave with having more questions. It's refreshing having actual time with a doctor now. Dr Gildersleeve also explained financial options for me. I didn't feel pressured in buying the most expensive pair of glasses and Mallory even advised which one of the two frames I was looking at would work better with progressive lenses. Fully Satisfied 🙂
