What is astigmatism?
Asked by AKSHAYA V | 12th Feb, 2014, 05:23: PM
The symptons of astigmatism: an eye with blurred vision.
A person’s eye is spherical in shape. But in astigmatism, the cornea of the eye of a person is not curved properly i.e. it is irregular.
When light rays enter the eye they do not focus correctly on the retina which results in a blurred image.
Astigmatism can also be caused by an irregularly shaped lens which is located behind the cornea.
