What are symptoms of astigmatism?
In an eye with astigmatism, vision is blurred due to the inability of the optical elements of the eye to focus a point object into a sharply focused point image
on the retina. Astigmatism makes it difficult to see fine details, both close-up and at a distance. Small amounts of astigmatism may not be noticed at all.
Sometimes uncorrected astigmatism can lead to eyestrain, eye fatigue, squinting, or headaches in addition to
blurring and distortion of vision at all distances.
