When images focus on different points in front or behind your retina, images both near or far may appear blurry. This condition is astigmatism. When astigmatism is combined with hyperopia (farsightedness), it is called hyperopic astigmatism. When combined with myopia (nearsightedness), it is called myopic astigmatism. Mixed astigmatism occurs when the astigmatism is both hyperopic and myopic - or when the eye has characteristics of both nearsightedness and farsightedness.
When you have more trouble seeing distant images clearly than close-up images, you have myopia. If you have myopia, light rays from distant images focus in front of the retina. Myopia can also occur in combination with astigmatism. LASIK can help correct these conditions.
When you have more trouble seeing close-up images clearly, you have hyperopia. If you have hyperopia, light rays from distant images focus behind the retina. Hyperopia can also occur in combination with astigmatism.
