Astigmatism is caused by an irregular curve in the cornea or lens resulting in distorted and blurred vision, it usually occurs at birth, although it can be caused by an accident or complication from eye surgery. As with most forms of visual impairment, astigmatism can be corrected by wearing glasses or contact lenses.
