What Is Astigmatism?

yesnick logo new 1000 ffccccccWhite 3333 0 20 3 1
Astigmatism is a common eye condition that occurs when there is an imperfection
in the shape of the cornea of the lens that can lead to blurry or distorted
vision. Regular
eye exams in Las Vegas can help you detect this and other vision issues.

 

People can either be born with astigmatism or have it develop later in
life. Contrary to popular belief, it does not happen as a result of reading
in low light or sitting too close to the television.

 

Some people with astigmatism might not be aware that they have an issue,
which is why it is important to visit your eye doctor for regular exams.
Check out this video to learn more about this refractive error and the
issues it causes.
