Imagine having slush on your window or a ding in the glass-changing the thickness of the glass won't let you see any better. Astigmatism is not correctable by any muscle manipulation. See a good optometrist to determine if contact lenses or special glasses can improve your vision. ...Read more

In most cases this is benign, and relieved with rest and artificial tears. See an ophthalmologist for an eye examination if persists with new glasses. ...Read more
