Your vision is blurry or distorted. Now what? Astigmatism can affect anyone — regardless of age. When your eye is curved unevenly, it has problems focusing light and that means blurry vision. Astigmatism is not a disease, it just means that you have cylindrical power — it’s completely normal, and more common than you might think.

Having Astigmatism doesn’t mean you cannot go for contact lenses.

What Causes Astigmatism?

Simply put: your eyeball is supposed to be shaped like a baseball, but astigmatism causes it to be more like a football. You can be born with astigmatism, or you may notice it over time. There are two types of astigmatism: regular and irregular.

Astigmatism Symptoms & Issues

If you can’t quite make out the letters on that street sign or you have to reply to that text in brighter light, you may have astigmatism. If left uncorrected, astigmatism can lead to more severe symptoms, such as headaches, fatigue, squinting and eye-muscle pain.


Contact lenses can offer freedom and flexibility from glasses, and ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses for Astigmatism can also solve nearsightedness and farsightedness.

Typically, contact lenses can rotate on your eye. For astigmatism, however, it’s especially important that your lenses stay in place for clear vision. Only ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses for Astigmatism feature EYELID-STABILIZED® Design that uses the natural blink of your eye to help keep the lens in the right place.

ACUVUE® Brand EYE-INSPIRED™ Design innovations are designed with the latest technology to correct your astigmatism, to help your lenses work with your unique lifestyle needs.
