When the cornea has an irregular shape, it is called corneal astigmatism. When the shape of the lens is distorted, you have lenticular astigmatism. Both irregularities cause refractive errors, meaning that light is focused incorrectly onto more than one spot on the back of the eye. The result is blurred or distorted vision of both near and far objects.
Do you have astigmatism?
Ask about an implantable “toric” replacement lens that corrects astigmatism.
