Astigmatism will not go away on its own. It will either stay the same or get worse with age. While this reality can seem daunting, the good news is that it can be easily corrected.
What causes astigmatism to go away?
Modern refractive surgery, which reshapes the surface of the eye with a laser, can also be used to reduce or eliminate the astigmatism. Wavefront guided LASIK or photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) can also reduce irregular astigmatism.
Can astigmatism be corrected naturally?
Astigmatism could be prevalent at birth or could be a result of trauma, congenital conditions or eye surgery. The condition can be very annoying as it makes a simple task like reading a book complicated. However, there are natural ways to treat astigmatism and one of them is eye exercises.
How do glasses compensate for astigmatism?
Wearing corrective lenses treats astigmatism by counteracting uneven curvatures of your cornea and lens.
What happens if astigmatism is not treated?
If left untreated, astigmatism may cause eyestrain, headaches, and blurry vision. If you have astigmatism you may not see objects in the distance or near without some form of distortion.
