Do you know your refractive error?​

I have astigmatism

Objects near and far are blurred.


Due to the uneven curvature of the cornea, light rays are imaged in the eye in several focal lines instead of in one focal point. Depending on the degree of astigmatism, objects near and far appear distorted.
