Astigmatism is an eye condition that can affect the clarity of your vision and make it more difficult for you to focus on objects. Astigmatism is most common in eyes where the cornea is oval like a rugby ball instead of spherical like a football.
Most astigmatic corneas have two curves; a steeper curve and a flatter curve. This causes light to focus at more than one point in the eye, resulting in blurred vision. Astigmatism can be a mild or fairly serious eye condition, with symptoms ranging from very mild blurred vision to severe blurriness resulting in squinting, fatigue and headaches.
Football – the beautiful game! Well, it is if you can actually see what you are doing. It’s often said that a footballer’s vision is his biggest asset. Whether it’s Fraser Forster climbing to reach a cross at the edge of his six yard box, Rio Ferdinand reading a 40-yard pass over the top or Lionel Messi threading the ball through a defenders legs to put David Villa through on goal, their eyes are the key component, sending all the important information to their brain ensuring optimum performance.
Eye strain, high pollen count, infections and computer screens are factors we battle on a daily basis as we try to keep our eyes healthy and our vision clear.
