What Is Astigmatism?
Astigmatism refers to an irregularly shaped cornea or lens that distorts light and prevents it from properly reaching the retina in one sharp point of focus. Patients with astigmatism can have difficulties seeing up close and items at a distance. Astigmatism is a common condition that may occur in conjunction with nearsightedness or farsightedness. Astigmatism symptoms generally include blurry vision, eye fatigue, squinting, and trouble seeing at night. At SPEX in Seattle, WA, Dr. Scott Campbell has lots of experience diagnosing and treating astigmatism. If you or a family member have astigmatism, Dr. Campbell can perform an eye exam and fit you with prescriptions for glasses and contact lenses that improve your eyesight.
How Is Astigmatism Treated?
Most cases of astigmatism usually require eyeglasses or contact lenses to correct the curvature of the cornea or lens. Thanks to cutting-edge technology, LASIK surgery centers now offer advanced treatments that restore the normal shape of corneas and lenses, allowing you to see more clearly and eliminating the need for glasses and contacts in most cases. These safe and effective surgical procedures can often be combined with other vision correction surgeries, allowing the clearest vision and the most practical solutions for patients.

SPEX Seattle Reviews
Dr Campbell rocks! He cares and takes the extra time. His team is Awesome! Thank you!
I don't live around this area. I was in need of urgent eyecare and staff went above and beyond to help me out. If I ever moved to this area, without a doubt this will be my go to optometrist/ophthalmologist. Very friendly staff. Highly recommend them.
Dr. Scott Campbell is the best. He does the most thorough exams and truly cares. SPEX has great frames and service. I’ve seen him for decades and even though we moved 100 miles away I still go back to have my eyes examined and have glasses made.
I've been a patient of Dr. Campbell's for a couple of decades now and there simply is no reason to go elsewhere. It is downtown but is simple enough to get there and park if driving. You'll find a multipurpose storefront with a salon, eyewear and exam room. They carry beautiful and unique frames and it's a treat to explore and find my next great pair of glasses. I receive compliments without fail each time I head out in my latest new look and yet continue to receive compliments on my older frames as well. Dr. Campbell's staff are the best at offering objective critiques and advice. For years now it's felt like visiting family when it's time to make another trip in. On the physician side, Dr. Campbell is a scientist and physician and truly loves and is passionate about eye health and advances in care, technology and treatment. I'm a retired engineer and there's always been time allotted to the latest projects on my side and the latest areas of interest for Dr. Campbell. His exam is thorough but comfortable throughout. His findings, diagnosis and referrals are 100% trustworthy.
