Astigmatism is a common and easily treatable imperfection in the curvature of your eye. The condition can cause blurred vision at all distances. Astigmatism occurs when your cornea or the lens has a slightly different surface curvature in one direction from the other. Astigmatism is often present at birth and can occur in combination with nearsightedness or farsightedness.
There are a number of options for patients seeking effective astigmatism treatment. Choosing the right treatment will depend on a number of factors including lifestyle, medical history, and degree of refractive error.
