    Well, generally speaking, it will just take about two weeks to cure astigmatism. For astigmatism, you should know that it is a visual condition of the eye that is caused by its shape. And because of different powers occur in the eyes, it is possible to have astigmatism. And nowadays, it can be cured by surgery and medical cares. So you can go and see the eye doctor as soon as possible if you have it. Or it can be dangerous, for it can lead to blurry vision, shadow images, eye muscle spasms, eyestrain, and headaches.

    I'm happy to answer your question. Astigmatism, is the common condition of eye problems. Don't worry about it. It will recover again in two weeks as usual through eyeglasses, contact lenses, or surgery. It's often caused by uneven tension of the extraocular muscles, in other words, prolonged eye strain. You can wear eyeglasses to counteract the irregular curvature of your cornea. Meanwhile, you can wear contact lenses. There are so many contact lenses in the market, you should choose those contacts are relative soft to make your eyes feel better. For astigmatism, changing the shape of the cornea through refractive or laser eye surgery is the other way to cure the eye symptom. With the technology development, it is becoming more and more important that you should take every aspect to consideration before you making a decision for eye surgery. Good luck for you.

    If you want the process to be short, you can choose a laser eye surgery. However, this way is not usually considered. And people always use other effective ways such as wearing glasses and contact lens. And make sure that you can have a balanced diet. Carrots and some green vegetables are very good for your eyes. I have heard that toric glasses are quite helpful to astigmatism. And since then, a lot of people have suffered from that. You can also have a try. Of course you should do some eye exercise in your free time. Reduce the time you spend in front of the computer. It may be long to cure your astigmatism, but you have to stick to it.

    Astigmatism can be cured, and the time the treatment lasts depends on the severity of your condition. If you are suffering from chronic astigmatism, you have to experience eye surgery that can be very long and exhausting. If you have the intention of having a surgery, it is better for you to start it at its earliest lest it leads to blindness in your later stage. Herbal remedies are also helpful. For example, you can mix rose water and lime juice and drop the mixture in your eyes at least three to four times each day. If you adopt this remedy, you will find your condition improved after doing this for three to four weeks. Since UV will exacerbate your condition, remember to wear UV protected sunglasses whenever you are exposed to sunlight. If you smoke, please quit it, for smoke will cause other serious problems by irritating your eyes.
