Astigmatism is a common eye problem that can make your vision slightly blurred or distorted. It happens when your cornea (the clear front layer of your eye) or lens (the inner part of the eye that helps the eye focus) has a different shape than normal. This different shape makes light bend differently as it enters your eye, causing a refractive error.
The only way to find out if you have astigmatism is to get a comprehensive eye exam from your optometrist. Eyeglasses or contact lenses can help correct the blurry vision.
