What is astigmatism?

Astigmatism = Distortion

Astigmatism usually involves the outer layer of the eye, called the cornea. When someone has Astigmatism, their cornea has one portion with a steeper curve compared to the rest of it. Because the curvature is not equal, vision will be distorted for both near and far objects. Images are blurred because some of the light rays are focused and others are not.

Astigmatism Is Genetic

Astigmatism is usually a genetically inherited condition, and sometimes occurs in combination with nearsightedness or farsightedness.
