In brief: Oval eye shape

Refractive errors require either plus (farsighted) or minus (nearsighted) glasses + an extra amount if the eye is oval in shape (astigmatism).
These are called refractive errors and can be corrected with glasses or contacts. The list of other eye problems is long and these are usually unrelated to astigmatism.
