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 is THE BEST. The staff squeezed me in to his busy schedule for an irritating eye issue. I was in and out in 10 minutes, he determined exactly what was going on, and had a quick solution!!! Did I mention THE BEST!!!
Dr. Campbell and his team are phenomenal. They are all so thoughtful, respectful, knowledgeable, and kind. Each visit is pleasant and efficient. I would highly recommend going to Spex. Additionally, they have a wide array of fashionable and interesting glasses frames to choose from.
While visiting Seattle from Houston, the screw came out of the arm of my glasses. The lovely ladies at Spex were able to fix my glasses better than before with a locktite screw. I am so thankful to be able to use my glasses! Thank you so very much!
The optometrist has (innovative) excellent communication skills. I felt really confident with his advice and prescription. The two staff members made for a comfortable, memorable experience and I will definitely return for my next eye exam.
Dr. Scott Campbell is the best! Our family has been seeing him for many years and my husband and I have moved to 2 different locations that put us 5+ hours and 1.5 hours from his office. We still keep him as our eye doctor. His office is immaculate, his staff is very friendly, caring and helpful, and Scott is up on the latest new eye conventions. He does refer patients to other specialties when needed. Our experience is that he is always on time so no unnecessary waiting for your appointment. His office is in the middle of the downtown core, 1 block from Nordstrom. I never hesitate to recommend Dr. Scott Campbell at Spex!
