I had my glasses changed last month and what a lucky me! The doctor said that I no longer have astigmatism. It has been cured! What a miracle! After 17 years of wearing contacts/glasses, that was the first time I went to the eye doctor and heard something positive. Usually, I would leave with an additional grade added to my contacts/glasses. Have you had similar experiences as mine?

Oh, that's too bad. I used to think mine won't get fixed either. But then the good news happened. I recommend that she wears her glasses all the time. I am still wearing glasses for my nearsightedness but at least I am no longer astigmatic. Astigmatism can make one feel dizzy.

Hi there! I am also astigmatic. I had my first eyeglasses when I was in 6th grade. I stop wearing those. Sadly, it complicated to some sort of of disease that prompt me to have my eye operation on my left eye. Luckily, the operation was successful and now, I'm wearing these glasses whenever I'm reading far objects. Its really a must to take care the gift of sight.

My best friend has astigmatism and she has told me that she checks it every year to see how it changes and it's true than it can be cured. But if you have shortsightedness I've heard that it's more likely to be stabilised after a certain age but it won't dissapear.

That is so cool! I have an astigmatism - and have been told that as mine is caused by the irregular shape of my eye that it may improve but will not be cured. I could have it fixed by laser surgery. I've also been told that shape of my eye is so different that wearing contact lenses the lens would move in my eye and i wouldnt be able to see...that glasses as they stay stationary...are the best for my eyes.
