Astigmatism Eye Condition & Treatments SingHealth

Astigmatism is a condition where the cornea has an abnormal curvature, causing a distortion in vision. A normal cornea is shaped like a sphere but in astigmatism the cornea is oval-shaped, causing problems in focusing the light entering the eye. Astigmatism is a very common condition and often occurs together with myopia (short-sightedness) or hyperopia (long-sightedness).
