At our centre in N16, Askew Eyewear checks for astigmatism in your regular eye test.
What is astigmatism?
Like short and long-sightedness, astigmatism is a problem in the way your eye focuses light. It happens when the cornea or the lens of your eye is not perfectly curved. This can cause your eye to focus images in two places on your retina, instead of one.
Astigmatism is very common, and can be corrected with the right lenses or contact lenses.
