In brief: Astigmatism

A complete eye exam can pick up astigmatism, since it is measurable in your glasses prescription.
It can also be mapped using corneal topography, where a surface is made of your eyes.

In brief: Diagnosing Astigmati

Astigmatism is caused by a football shaped cornea so technologies can that can measure corneal shape (topographers) can diagnose astigmatism.Glasses refraction, corneal topography, scheimpflug photography, keratometry, and many sophisticated technologies can easily diagnose astigmatism today.
Most cases can be corrected by glasses/cls, laser techniquesand lens implant technologies (toric lenses).
