Does astigmatism come and go?
i had my first glasses at 12 but i never really wore them often til 15. Im in my late teens now and i still barely wear them. only wear them for driving and looking at board. anyways i remember one year my doc said i got astigmatism, the next year i didnt and 2 years later i got it. does it come and go

Astigmatism does not come and go.The reason it may have seemed that you didnt have it any more is that you started to wear your glasses more regularly and your vision got a bit better and may have goten worse if you started to wear them less frequently.

I have Astigmatism and wear contacts made especially for this eye problem.Ask your optometrist about Acuvue for Astigmatism they are alot better than regular contact lenses.



hope i helped!

I'm not sure, but I think it does. I wear contact lenses and my doc told me my astigmatism got better.

It depends on the value of astigmatism (what we eyedocs call "cylinder.") Cylinder can fluctuate a quarter of a diopter here and there depending on time of day due to corneal edema (e.g. swelling). If you have more than -0.75D of cylinder, then I would not count on your astigmatism disappearing.

I dont think astigmatism can just "go away" it can be correct though through surgery or corrective lenses (glasses/contacts)

Yes it can. It can get better or worse quickly, which is why you should need to see an eye doctor about every two years or even every year. It can also change where the astigmatism is in your eye.
