What is astigmatism?

If you have an irregularly shaped cornea, you may have astigmatism. This common eye condition typically causes patients to have mild to severe vision issues since it affects the cornea's ability to refract light onto the retina. Some symptoms of astigmatism include eye fatigue, blurred vision, squinting, and trouble seeing at night (especially when driving). At The Eye Center of Southern Indiana, our Bloomington, IN team will perform a comprehensive eye exam to learn about your eye health and determine if any issues, such as astigmatism, could be contributing to your vision impairment. In some cases, severe astigmatism can be an indication of keratoconus, which is a degenerative corneal condition that worsens over time and is best treated when it's caught in its earlier stages.

How is astigmatism treated?

Astigmatism can be treated using very simple means, but those with minor astigmatism usually have the best results without treatment.
