Astigmatism it is a treatable imperfection that is found in the curvature of the eye that results a blurred distance and near vision.
Astigmatism occurs when either the front surface of the eye (cornea) or the lens inside the eye has mismatched curves.
What is Astigmatism?
Astigmatism is caused by the aberrant formation of curves in the front surface of the eye (cornea) or on the lens inside the eye when they have mismatched curves.
Rather than having one curve like a round ball, the surface is egg-shaped. This causes blurred vision at all distances. If you suffer from astigmatism, the light enters your eye is curved more than it should be.
These means only sections of an object you’re looking at are in focus. That scabrous focus makes objects appear blurry or wavy.
What are the symptoms of Astigmatism?
Astigmatism manifests itself by making the normally spherical cornea elongated, which is shaped more of like a football.
Some of the symptoms of astigmatism are :
- Having to squint to have a clear vision
- Having headaches
- Facing trouble while trying to see at night
- Hazy or distorted vision
- Eyestrain or discomfort in the eye
Astigmatism frequently worsens with age. Your cornea can become more unstable caused by pressure from your eyelids as they lose muscle tone over time. Astigmatism generally stays normal until you become 50. After that, your lens curvature progressively servers with each decade to come.
Cause of Astigmatism
It’s not clearly known what the cause of astigmatism is, but genetics is known to be a big factor. It’s usually present at birth, but it may evolve later in life.
It may also arise as a result of an injury that happened to the eye or after going through eye surgery. But a few of the causes are believed to be.
- Amblyopia (‘lazy eye’)
- Complications after going under an eye surgery.
Astigmatism often occurs with nearsightedness or farsightedness.
