What is astigmatism?Astigmatism is a common type of refractive error. It is a condition in which the eye does not focus light evenly onto the retina
How does astigmatism occur?
Astigmatism occurs when light is bent differently depending on where it strikes the cornea and passes through the eyeball. This can cause images to appear blurry and stretched out.
How is astigmatism diagnosed?
Astigmatism is usually found during a comprehensive dilated eye exam.
How is astigmatism corrected?
Astigmatism can be corrected with eyeglasses, contact lenses, or surgery. Individual lifestyles affect the way astigmatism is treated.
Regular contact lenses do not correct astigmatism. You will need to use Soft Toric contact lenses or Semi soft contact lenses to effectively correct Astigmatism.
