- Astigmatism means that a corneal or lens surface is oval like a rugby ball instead of spherical like a basketball.
- This causes light to focus on more than one point in the eye, resulting in blurred vision at distance or near.
- Astigmatism often occurs along with nearsightedness or farsightedness.
Signs and Symptoms
- Blurred vision (near and distance).
- Eye strain (headaches).
- Poorer vision in dull lighting.
