Astigmatism is a common eye condition where the light going through the eye does not focus to a single point on the retina. Astigmatism symptoms often includes blurred, fuzzy or skewed vision. Astigmatism is often caused by a curvature to the cornea – the clear window to the eye.

Not fully described in this short video is how astigmatism can also be caused by the curvature to the lens inside the eye, however, the end result is the same.

For most people astigmatism is not a disease but can progress and change with age. For some unlucky individuals, other eye diseases such as keratoconus can result in extreme levels of astigmatism.

Thankfully, for most cases of astigmatism, people can see very well with eyeglasses, astigmatism correcting contact lenses and refractive surgery such as lasik.
