What Is Astigmatism?

Last updated 6 years ago

There are several different refractive disorders that can cause impaired vision. The three most common disorders are nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

This video focuses on astigmatism, helping you to better understand what it is. Almost every person has some degree of astigmatism, as the condition is simply an abnormal shape in the cornea. Mild astigmatism will produce no symptoms, but in moderate to severe cases, the person’s vision will be blurry. A few treatment options are available for correcting astigmatism, so you should discuss the right one for your needs with your doctor.

If your vision is less than perfect, schedule a visit to Wize Eyes to discover why and to find affordable solutions. With six Long Island locations, we provide fast and convenient service. Learn more by visiting our website or by calling (516) 358-0040.
