AstigmatismAstigmatism is a condition that causes blurred vision due to the irregular shape of the cornea (the clear front covering of the eye) or sometimes the curvature of the lens inside the eye. It can usually be corrected with glasses or contact lenses that alter the way light enters the eyes.
Myopia: Myopia is a vision condition in which close objects are seen clearly, but distant objects are not properly focused. Myopia occurs if your eyeball is too long or the cornea has too much curvature, so the light entering your eye is not properly focused and can be fixed with the use of glasses or contact lenses.
