What is Astigmatism?

Astigmatism is one of the most common refractive errors found in eyes today. Dr. Teske from The Eye Doctors of New Tampa explains what it is and how it's treated. Astigmatism can be corrected with glasses, and in most cases people with astigmatism can wear contact lenses too!

During my eye exam today, I found out that I now have astigmatism in my right eye in addition to nearsightedness in both of my eyes. It’s new glasses and prescription sunglasses for me.

I'm nearsighted in one eye and far-sighted in the other and both eyes have astigmatism 😅😅
I just installed a red dot optic on my rifle and it’s all blurry. I searched the internet, and evidently a lot of people find they have astigmatisms this way. People even leave negative reviews until they find out the problem is in their eyes, not the gun sight.
Now I get to spend more money and by a holographic optic! Lol, watch me have the same problem probably.

I have astigmatism in my left eye, I'm weak in my left eye as well
can astigmatism cause double vision or "ghost sight"?
a little double line above the original picture but u can see through it.
when I close 1 eyes it's still there, I believe it's called monocular diplopia. I have seen several eye doctors and had a MRI scan.
They all say everything looks normal but 1 eye has a little cone shape.

so if it is so ordinary and can be corrected in Glasses lenses... why have I been to 5 different optometrists in the capital of Virginia and NOT gotten a prescription that resolves astigmatism in my right eye ? If an optometrist has tried more than once to get it right, are they not sworn to say when they are stumped?

Can this be cured without glasses or contacts. I don't want glasses or contacts but I can't get LASIK because of the flap. PRK has a too long of a recovery time. What can I get?
Drake Atlas

Can this heal?
I have astigmatism, does anyone here see like a ghost image of the original image specially when that particular object has light colors or being shined with light and it's in a dark background..like I see it as double but not that strong, my optometrist said it was due to overuse of gadgets, is anyone like this?

I have autism as well
I'm a Boxer who wants to join the British Army and I plan to get PRK but, I have bad eye sight, and astigmatism in one eye, will this affect my Boxing career or my army career? Can I still get PRK perfectly fine and if so does the army pay for it?
I guess the only way to know if you have astigmatism is with an eye exam correct?
