Astigmatism and Astigmatism Correction

Astigmatism, LASIK

Astigmatism develops when the corneal focusing surface of the eye is not spherical. Instead the cornea has different curvatures of focus creating image splitting blurred vision. Astigmatism splits focus locations resulting in blur Correction of most astigmatism can be optical (glasses and contact lenses) or surgical (Laser Vision Correction – LASIK). To evaluate the curvatures […]

What is astigmatism?

Astigmatism, Eye Conditions

Astigmatism is an optical condition that creates different points of focus. As a consequence someone with uncorrected astigmatism will experience blurred vision. This uncorrected visual blur results when the front optical surfaces of the eye are not spherical. A spherical optical surface bends images evenly resulting in equally focused images within the eye. Spherical surfaces focus […]
