What is Astigmatism?

Astigmatism is a common refractive error that affects the clarity of vision. Symptoms of astigmatism may include blurred or distorted vision, making it difficult to see fine details or objects at both near and far distances. Those with astigmatism may also experience difficulty seeing in low-light conditions, such as at night, due to the compromised ability of their eyes to focus. Eye strain and fatigue are common symptoms as well, as individuals with astigmatism may need to strain their eyes more than usual to achieve clear vision. Sensitivity to light is another symptom, where bright lights may cause discomfort or glare. Additionally, headaches or eye discomfort can occur as a result of the eye muscles constantly working to compensate for the irregular shape of the cornea or lens.
