Astigmatism is an imperfection in the curvature of your eye’s cornea or lens. Normally, the cornea and lens are smooth and curved equally in all directions. This helps to focus light rays sharply onto the retina at the back of your eye. If your cornea or lens isn’t smooth and evenly curved, light rays aren’t refracted (bent) properly. Doctors call this a refractive error. With this, your vision for both near or far objects is distorted or blurry. If you’re experiencing symptoms like eye strain, headache, or squinting of the eyes to see then it’s best to visit your nearest Ophthalmology Clinic in Elmhurst, New York and have a check-up to determine the causes of your astigmatism.
