Astigmatism is a common refractive error in which light is not focused properly on the retina, resulting in vision problems. It affects about one in three people in the U.S. and can affect both children and adults. If you have this condition, both near and far objects may appear blurred or distorted.
You might have heard about astigmatism during a contact lenses consultation with your optometrist, or maybe even in passing during conversations with your colleagues who are afflicted with the condition. To provide a better understanding, Vision Care Plus sheds light on astigmatism, and how this condition affects your eyesight.
