Astigmatism may sound like a big word, but it really is a common condition that most of us experience. In a cornea that is perfectly shaped, light enters your eyes at a right angle so that it can perfectly fall on your retina, which indicates sharp vision.

In the case of astigmatism, the cornea is shaped more like a football than a baseball and this irregularity in the cornea’s shape makes the light focus on two points on the retina instead of one. This results in blurry and distorted vision.

Whether you suffer from a mild or severe case of astigmatism, it can be easily corrected with the help of corrective lenses. Let’s understand this condition better with the help of an infographic.
