In brief: Visual blur

Astigmatism is found in an eye with some degree of ovalness.
Most are intrinsic (not due to some external cause) and it is very common (over 60% of eyes have some degree of astigmatism). Correction is a reverse oval of the proper power in eyeglasses or contact lenses. Lasik can also correct this. There are no eyedrops, lifestyle changes or dietary changes to correct this.
