Astigmatism – Causes, symptoms and Treatment
An astigmatism is an eye
condition where the eyeballs develop a slightly ovular shape, not remaining
rounded, thus creating a refractive error in the eye. This condition will force
the light that enters the eye to become focused on two entirely dissimilar
planes. These phenomena results in a blur in vision that occurs naturally at
each and every distance.
Bases of an Astigmatism
The 2 categories of an astigmatism:
A Corneal Astigmatism
A Lenticular astigmatism
A Corneal astigmatism is created when the eye’s cornea is not ideally curved
making one half of the cornea curve more than the other side. When this occurs,
the light entering the eye does not refract correctly and thus the retina
collects only distorted images.
A Lenticular Astigmatism is somewhat similar to the other astigmatism, but the
problem is located in the eye’s lens and not in the cornea. Those who struggle
with diabetics are likely to develop this sort of an astigmatism. This is
because they have higher amounts of sugar in their blood.
Signs of an Astigmatism
People with an astigmatism may experience:
· Blurry eyesight
· Strained eyes
Detection of an Astigmatism
An eye doctor (ophthalmologist) can use
these procedures to identify an astigmatism.
An Acuteness test: This is where a patient read a chart of letter that
gradually gets smaller with each line.
Use a Keratometer:
This kind of tool is used to scale the
amount of refracted light on the external face of the cornea.
Use a Keratoscope: The kind of device utilizes light to display circles
onto the cornea.
Treatment for an Astigmatism.
Modern science has created a kind of management to correct an astigmatism. Once
that it is a confirmed condition, the astigmatism can be fixed easily. Some
kinds of treatment are listed below:
Contact lenses: The corrective lenses curve the light rays in a manner that fix
the refractive malfunctions of the eye.
Laser epithelial keratomileusis (LASEK):
loosen the surface of the cornea, alcohol is used, after which a laser is shone
in order to correct the shape of the cornea.
Laser in situ keratectomy (LASIK): In this procedure, a rounded incision
is made in the cornea with a laser. There is minimal pain in this kind of
Surgery is not advisable to those who are under 21 years old. It is also not
advisable to those who struggle with diabetes to have any other pre-existing eye
