Astigmatism: Why Is My Vision Blurry At All Distances?
If you are experiencing vision that is blurry up-close, far away, and at every distance in between, you may be experiencing the effects of astigmatism. Unlike nearsightedness and farsightedness, astigmatism is caused by an irregularly shaped cornea (on the external eye surface) or lens (inside the eye). This irregularity prevents all incoming light and images from properly focusing on the retina (within the back inside surface of the eye). If you are experiencing blurry vision at all distances, along with eye pain and/or headaches, it is time to take action and schedule an eye exam at your nearest Wise Eyes Optical center.
Eyeglasses and Contact Lenses Help Astigmatics Get the Most Out of Life
Astigmatism is a common condition amongst all ages, with over three million individuals diagnosed with the condition per year. Due to the distortion of the cornea or lens being shaped more like an oval than a sphere, the light entering the eye is not focused with precision. This is what causes the “blurry” appearance. It may be present at birth, develop later in life, or occur as a result of injury or surgery to the eye. Contrary to the belief of some, astigmatism is not made worse by reading in poor light, sitting too close to the television, squinting, or wearing corrective lenses. In fact, if your eyes are astigmatic, wearing your eyeglasses or contact lenses will provide the clear, crisp vision you need to get the most out of life, as well as help prevent the headaches, eye pain, and fatigue that can result from overworking your brain, eyes, and nervous system.
