Astigmatism

Astigmatism is an optical defect when vision is blurred due to the inability of the optics of the eye to focus on a point and bringing an object into a sharp focused image on the retina. This may be due to an irregular or toric curvature of the cornea or lens. The two types of astigmatism are regular and irregular. Irregular astigmatism is often caused by a corneal scar or scattering in the crystalline lens, and cannot be corrected by standard spectacle lenses, but can be corrected by toric contact lenses. The more common regular astigmatism arising from either the cornea or crystalline lens can be corrected by eyeglasses or toric lenses. A ‘toric’ surface resembles a section of the surface of a Rugby ball or a doughnut where there are two regular radii, one smaller than the other one.
