What is Astigmatism?

Astigmatism is one of the most common vision problems.

Astigmatism is not an eye disease. Like nearsightedness and farsightedness, astigmatism is a type of refractive error – a condition related to the shape and size of the eye that causes blurred vision.

In addition to blurred vision, uncorrected astigmatism can cause headaches, eyestrain and make objects at all distances appear distorted.

How do you treat Astigmatism?

Most cases of astigmatism can treated with glass or contact prescriptions. Also Lasik, PRK, and other refractive operations solve problems related to astigmatism.
