Image of Astigmatism Optique, opticians in Battersea, LondonIf you suffer from Astigmatism, your eye is shaped more like a rugby ball than a football and hence the light rays are focused on more than one place in the eye, so you don’t have one clear image. This may make it hard to tell ‘N’ from ‘H’, for instance.

Most people have a small amount of astigmatism, which may not need correcting. However, if your vision is blurred or you get headaches or eyestrain, your optometrist may recommend that you wear glasses all the time – or just for specific tasks.

Glasses which correct this may feel strange at first, although vision with the glasses will be clear and your eyes will feel much more relaxed once you have adapted to the glasses.
