Astigmatism is an uneven curvature of the cornea resulting in blurry vision. With astigmatism the cornea is shaped like a football. Astigmatism can result in an inability to focus clearly at any distance, because light rays entering the eye are bent unequally by the cornea, preventing the formation of a sharp point of focus on the retina.
