Astigmatism

AstigmatismAstigmatism is a common condition that occurs when your cornea is oblong in shape, like a football, instead of round. When light passes through a cornea with astigmatism, the images do not focus properly, causing blurred vision.

 

SIGNS OF ASTIGMATISM

  • Blurry, distorted, or fuzzy vision at all distances (close-up and far away)
  • Difficulty seeing at night
  • Eyestrain
  • Squinting
  • Eye irritation
  • Headaches

Astigmatism is typically treated with glasses or special contact lenses, but can also be permanently corrected with laser refractive surgery.
