Long Sight (Hyperopia)
October 4, 2016


Astigmatism is caused by the front surface of the eye (the cornea) being shaped with two different curves much like an AFL football, as opposed to a normal spherical (soccer ball) shaped cornea.

It can also be caused by a slight tilting of the lens inside the eye. The result is that light focuses at different points at the back of the eye causing a blurred image.
