Astigmatism is caused by the irregular curvature of the front surface of the eye (cornea) or the lens inside your eye. The condition often causes blurred vision at all distances and can occur along with nearsightedness or farsightedness.
Light rays do not focus on a single point for clear vision. Instead, they focus on two distinct points.
Astigmatism causes visual distortion, blurry vision, eyestrain or fatigue and often headaches.

Hear from our patients!
We were very impressed with the quality of service from all of the personnel. Very professional precise. Dr. Piñedo explained to me my predicament very well. Her being bilingual in this field is so important, especially in the metropolitan area of El Paso, Canutillo and Sunland Park New Mexico. Oh and the chandelier looks as beautiful as it always has.Alfredo G.
Great experience overall! Staff is very professional and operates very efficiently in my opinion. I've had several appointments there and never waited more than 20 minutes. This place takes care of their patients!Joel M.
Very clean environment, with very friendly receptionists. Time in the waiting room was minimal. The medical assistant was friendly and guided me through the different exams kindly without rushing. Dr. Di Pascuale was kind and informative. I felt he answered all my questions.Pat V.
