Blurred vision requiring spectacles may be caused by myopia, hyperopia or astigmatism.  Astigmatism is common with at least 50% of patients having some.  It blurs vision because the cornea has an asymmetric pattern of focusing. Astigmatism can be corrected with glasses, contact lenses, laser vision correction surgery and implantable contact lens surgery.
