Diagnostics, treatment of an astigmatism. Main types of correction of an astigmatism are-point correction, torichesky contact lenses, laser correction and special intraocular lenses.
The main symptoms of an astigmatism are:
Poor eyesight both afar and at a short distance.
Surrounding objects seem bent, places indistinct, straight lines — curved.
Headaches, strong fatigue at visual loading.
Reddening and inflammation century, mucous membrane, dacryagogue.
For diagnostics of an astigmatism the following methods of research are used:
Vizometriya (determination of visual acuity).
Definition of a refraction (force of refraction of optical environments of an eye) - autorefractometry, a skiaskopiya. Often definition of a true refraction requires expansion of pupils.
Keratometriya. By means of this method force of refraction of a cornea on all meridians and the radius of its refraction is investigated.
Definition of akkomodatsionny function of eyes. This method of diagnostics is intended for research of force of an intraocular akkomodatsionny muscle which knows focusing of a crystalline lens on different distances.
Ophthalmometry - ultazvukovy a method of determination of the sizes of a front and back axis of an eye.
Biomicroscopy, oftalmoskopiya. Are intended for inspection of changes in forward and back pieces of an eye.
Treatment of an astigmatism
Main types of correction of an astigmatism are-point correction, torichesky contact lenses, laser correction and special intraocular lenses.
In treatment of an astigmatism training and stimulation of akkomodatsionny muscles is important. In the Ophthalmologic center CORVIS on a row with standard methods of stimulation (electrostimulation, a lazerstimulyation low-energy helium - neon and infrared lasers, tsvetoimpulsny therapy, a magnetotherapy, an electrophoresis, vacuum massage, vibration massage, treatment by an infrasound, computer methods of stimulation of tsiliarny muscles) carry out treatment of an astigmatism by unique techniques, developed by Goncharova Serafima Andreevna.
