Astigmatism

 

At Dive Gear Australia we can supply lenses corrected for astigmatism so that you can enjoy your dive in focus and without blurring or missing the small creatures and without eyestrain and image distortion.

Here is a little more about astigmatism.Astigmatism is a refractive error in how the eye focuses light and is usually caused by an irregularly shaped cornea.

In an eye with astigmatismthe irregularly shaped cornea causes light to be focussed on two or more focus points which may be in front or behind the retina and this causes vision to be blurred or distorted to some degree at all distances.

Eye strain, headaches, and squinting are common symptoms of uncorrected astigmatism.
