Astigmatism
« on: April 23, 2014, 02:36:00 AM »
As my spherical power goes down from using plus glasses systematically my astigmatism seems to increase or at the very least becomes more obvious (because it represents a lot more than it used to be in terms of percentages : spherical vs cylindrical )

How did you get rid of your astigmatism ?

I have horizontal astigmatism which is one of the better ones since i actually can see some parts of the picture : http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/42/Astigmatism_text_blur.png

Hi Steven,

looking at the radials of an astigmatism sun (@farpoint) should give you a better impression about the axis and how much you are
affected.

IMHO it seems to be an uneven recovery process, some meridians recover faster compared to the others at 90° and between.
Maybe it will even out when approaching emmetropia.
Some folks are claiming the Tibetan Wheel being helpful.
