There are two kind of astigmatism. One called regular astigmatism and the other called irregular astigmatism.Regular Astigmatism refers to an irregular shape of the eye. It means you may have a football shaped eye, and the causes are usually genetic.Irregular Astigmatism refers to the problem caused by damage to the eye. It usually improves with surgery or contacts.

Whatever the type, you should take steps to avoid ocular stress such as excessive computer use because it can aggravate your astigmatism to some extent. Moreover, reading nespapers and books can also cause ocular stress. Some close-up work such as writing, reading, sewing, or even accounting falls into the category of detailed work can cause ocular stress.

What's more, you may end up making ocular stress worse by working in low light, watching TV in low light, not drinking enough water, or not having a balanced diet. Paying attention to these factors and correcting these issues may actually help improve your astigmatism.
