I’m kind of a lousy patient. I buy bulk contact lenses and only bother to return the eye doctor when I’m low on lenses or I can tell my scrip needs to be changed. I noticed Halos at night and always assumed everyone saw those. I wasn’t till I had an optics issue that I realized I had an astigmatism. I mentioned it to my mother and she laughed at me. She was surprised I didn’t know and acted like I must had forgotten. I’ve been wearing corrective lenses since I was 11.

I don’t think you have to be near or far sighted to have an astigmatism either.
