Many people are affected by astigmatism. It's a vision defect that makes it difficult or impossible to focus on a certain point because the lens or the retina – or both – are somehow deformed. The eyeball of people with astigmatism resembles a rugby ball shape rather than the near-perfect spheroid that it should be.
Astigmatism is correctable only to an extent with glasses. If you close one eye and look through one lens of a pair of glasses with the other, and then revolve it in your hands, you'll see the image distort and twist.
If you are affected by astigmatism, you'll need toric contact lenses to correct the distortion and lack of focus in your vision. Some types of astigmatism are only correctable with contact lenses (or risky surgery), and can't be corrected with glasses at all.
