Astigmatism is a visual condition where the front surfaces of the eyes are not round, they are shaped more like a football. Vision can be restored with glasses or contact lenses. In some cases, the astigmatism is so high that glasses cause lots of distortion and contact lenses are not an option. However, a custom-designed scleral lens may be an option to be free of glasses allowing better vision and comfort when playing sports or other outdoor activities.
