Even with mild symptoms, prescription lenses will help improve your vision significantly, or could help slow the effects of astigmatism. Lenses will be specially designed to compensate for the irregular cornea shape which causes astigmatism. Talk to your optician, who will be able advise you on the various solutions available.

Did You Know
Causes Of Astigmatism

Vision is effected by an irregular-shaped cornea.

When the cornea is perfectly round, light rays bend (refract) evenly onto a small area of the retina to create a sharp image. With astigmatism, the cornea (the clear, outermost layer of the eye) is oval. So the light is unable to focus, producing a blurred image.

Most people have some sort of astigmatism – it's very rare for the cornea to be perfectly round.
