What is Astigmatism

Your vision is blurry or distorted. Now what? Astigmatism can affect anyone — regardless of age. When your eye is curved unevenly, it has problems focusing light and that means blurry vision. Astigmatism is not a disease — it’s completely normal, and more common than you might think.

What Causes Astigmatism?

Simply put: your eyeball is supposed to be shaped like a baseball, but astigmatism causes it to be more like a football. You can be born with astigmatism, or you may notice it over time. There are two types of astigmatism: regular and irregular.

Astigmatism Symptoms & Issues

If you can’t quite make out the letters on that street sign or you have to reply to that text in brighter light, you may have astigmatism. If left uncorrected, astigmatism can lead to more severe symptoms, such as headaches, fatigue, squinting and eye-muscle pain.
