I am having very bad headaches and throwing up feeling so i went to the eye doctor to get checked if there was something wrong with my eye. The docotr told me that i have astigmatism. I didnt know anything bouat it before.
Can astigmatism cause bad headaches and throwing up feeling? The doc said that it might be the problem but he is not sure.

What should i do to get cured and what shouldt i do so that it doesnt get worst and hoe serious is this problem?

Thank you very much

Re: Astigmatism


Astigmatism is very, very common. What it is....the rounded surface of the cornea becomes slightly pointed. It can be corrected with glasses, or toric contact lenses. I believe, in more severe cases, laser surgery can now be used to reshape the cornea.

You didn't say how serious your astigmatism is. Generally, it shouldn't cause headaches and nausea, unless you are in really bad need of glasses. It sounds more like migraine headaches to me.

Hope this helps.
