Eye Condition










Astigmatism

Astigmatism is a refractive error, it is not an eye disease. In this condition, your eyes’ oval shape causes vision to appear blurry at a distance and up close. George can help you see clearly and comfortably by prescribing glasses or contact lenses that fit you. We can also advise other options such as orthokeratology or laser corrective surgery. If remain uncorrected, astigmatism may cause the same symptoms as myopia and hyperopia. Although in some cases there will be no symptoms, but it may cause struggle in doing easy tasks.

Keratoconus

Keratoconus is a disease of the eye where a normally round cornea progressively thins and bulges like a cone. The change in the shape of the cornea brings light rays out of focus which then results in blurred and distorted vision. It usually takes a few years for the disease to progress so early detection is key to prevent it from worsening. In the Philippines, one of the few optometrists who can help treat Keratoconus is Dr. Geoffrey Co, the President and CEO of George. Symptoms
