A Big Blur
Let's Clear This Up!
Astigmatism is a common vision condition in which your eye isn’t completely round which can blur objects both near and far due to the eye not being able to focus. Astigmatism in kids can be difficult to diagnose because many kids don’t recognize the blurriness they see and they view it as “normal”. Astigmatism symptoms include blurred vision, distorted vision, eyestrain, and headaches. Not only does nearsightedness cause physical issues, but school performance and safety is impacted when it is not treated correctly. Astigmatism can be treated with corrective eyeglasses, contacts, or eye surgery.
