  • Hi Sally,
    Thank you for your questions. Astigmatism is a refractive error like nearsightedness or farsightedness. All are due to the shape of the cornea. Nearsightedness causes one to have blurry distance vision (better near); farsightedness causes one to have blurry near vision up close. For astigmatism, the cornea is more oval shaped instead of round, and depending on the severity of it, may cause blurred vision both at distance and near. All are usually correctable with eyeglasses or contact lenses. Yes, glasses are available that correct both distance and near at the same time. Yes they are available at Burke Eyecare located at 1105 S. Main Street in Grove, OK right next to the WestCo furniture store.
