Astigmatism is a defect in the eye which causes blurred version, fatigue, and headaches. Regular Astigmatism, which is the more common of the 2 types, arises from either the cornea or crystalline lens. Irregular Astigmatism is often caused by a corneal scar or scattering in the crystalline lens. This cannot be corrected by standard spectacle lenses, however it may be by contact lenses.
Astigmatism causes the eye or eyes to lose focus at any distance. Generally this may be fixed by glasses, however surgery is generally a good alternative.
