Meta Description: Did you know you can have your fill of contact lenses to use for astigmatism? Yes, and to your surprise, they are colored contact lenses. So don’t hold yourself from diving into the world of contact lenses!
So, you just found out about astigmatism and thinking you are doomed to wear glasses for the rest of your life. Gone are the days when your eyes were the best feature of your face! However, the reality is far from that. Yes, astigmatism is a complication we should deal with the right way. But it is nothing to be feared with. Many people are actually born with this condition, and even later, many people have different levels of astigmatism. And there are several options for you to improve the situation.
Astigmatism is a pretty common problem related to vision, which can cause blurry, fuzzy images. With astigmatism, the retina or the lens of the eye has an irregular curve, which changes the course of light passing through the retina. And, that’s the reason one with this complication suffers from distorted vision.
The curvature of the lens and the cornea make sure that the light is focused on the retina to focus it correctly. But in astigmatism, the basketball-like cornea looks more like football. And, with this different curvature, the eye cannot focus light where it should be. And, for this reason, the vision comes out of focus, hence the blurry image. It is still not clear what causes astigmatism, but genetics does play a role. Also, injury to the eye and an unusual condition called keratoconus can cause astigmatism.
Here’s the confusing part; the symptoms can differ for a different person. And, some even don’t show any signs! People who have astigmatism can sometimes face the problem described below:
If any of these happen to you and you can’t find any logical reason for these problems, you should consult an ophthalmologist.
The term astigmatism is tough to digest, but the treatment of this irregularity is simple in most cases. People always choose eyeglasses to offset the condition.
As with all eye care solutions, always consult your eye doctor before making any decision. Remember, as a person with astigmatism; always prioritize your eye care.
