How to Address Astigmatism 

While there is no cure for astigmatism, there are several treatment options available to help correct or improve vision. Eyeglasses and contact lenses are the most common and non-invasive methods of correcting astigmatism. These corrective lenses work by compensating for the irregular shape of the cornea or lens, allowing light to properly focus on the retina. In some cases, refractive surgery, such as LASIK or PRK, may be recommended to reshape the cornea and improve vision. It is important to consult with an eye care professional to determine the best treatment option for you.
