We know that the shape of conea is spherical and it helps in the refraction of light to make the image at ratina . If the shape of the cornea changes horizontally or vertically , it causes in the focus of image at the ratina. For example if you are seeing asquare mesh , the horizonatal or vertical lines of meash may not get focused on the ratina and you get the image of mesh in which vertical or horizontal lines are curved not straight.
It can be cured with the help of cylinderical lens.
