Expert Answer:

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.
