Astigmatism is an eye condition that can occur in conjunction with myopia, hyperopia, or on its own.  Astigmatism occurs when the front of the eye (cornea) is not perfectly spherical (often described as ‘football shaped’).  It causes the image of the object you see to be focused at two different points and so is blurred.  Astigmatism is easily corrected using glassesor contact lenses.
