Eye Conditions and Treatment
Astigmatism is treated in the Contact Lens Service and the Comprehensive Ophthalmology Faculty Practice
Astigmatism is characterized by an irregular curvature of the cornea. It is a condition in which objects, both near and distant, appear blurred. The cornea and lens of the eye should be spherical. However, the eye of a person with astigmatism is shaped more like a football or the back of a spoon. Astigmatism occurs in nearly everybody to some degree. For significant curvature, treatment is required.
