    Astigmatism significantly affects living, studying, working as well as daily life. However, this is just a refractive error and can be easily corrected.

    If you or a loved one is unfortunate enough to have astigmatism, don’t worry, it can be improved and prevented with simple methods that don’t cause any sensations. Astigmatism can apply some of the following ways to improve vision for the eyes.

    1. Wear glasses

    This is considered a simple method but extremely effective for those who are suffering from myopia. Glasses for people with astigmatism will be different from other types of conventional glasses because doctors will help people with astigmatism the glasses that can help improve the defects of the eye.

    Not only glasses, contact lenses can also support vision for people with astigmatism. Contact lenses not only support vision, but also help improve aesthetics. Whether it’s contact lenses or frames, people with astigmatism should consult with their doctor to learn how to wear them most effectively.

    2. Astigmatism Surgery

    Astigmatism can be corrected with surgery and the risk is virtually nonexistent. This surgery can be performed in small hospitals or medical centers if they have a team of good and skilled doctors.

    03 commonly applied methods in astigmatism surgery are Lasik, FemtoLasik and Smile surgery. These methods are performed very gently and hardly cause any discomfort during the procedure. The patient recovered quickly after surgery. However, not all patients can perform Lasik surgery, before the operation, the patient will be examined by the doctor and carefully checked the eye condition.

    3. Specific exercises for people with astigmatism

    People with astigmatism can apply some eye exercises to relax their eyes and reduce it (also can reduce eye strain that often occurs in office workers).

    You can massage the eyeball by closing your eyes and then placing your fingertips on the area between the eyes. Then you continue to massage from left to right clockwise gently. Repeat this movement 10 times continuously, then reverse.

    Relax your eyes by exercising your eyes when working or reading… every few minutes, switch your gaze to another object when you feel your eyes start to get tired.
