What are the signs and symptoms of astigmatism?
Astigmatism can be very mild, with no perceptible changes to your eyesight. It is commonly found in people with myopia (short-sightedness) or hyperopia (long-sightedness). Sometimes it can be associated with known cornea conditions, such as keratoconus.
Whilst very mild cases are generally asymptomatic, moderate to severe cases will hamper your eye’s ability to bend light and focus. In these cases, the symptoms can be:
- Blurred vision
- Headaches or even migraines
- Eye strain
