Astigmatism Symptoms #2: Eye Strain

Eye strain, or asthenopia, occurs when there is pain in or around the eyes, blurry vision, headaches, fatigue, and double vision. Eye strain usually occurs after tedious visual tasks such as reading and computer work because these tasks require continuous focus, causing the ciliary muscles to tighten.

It can also be caused by visual problems such as heterophoria (where the eyes are not pointing at rest position) and accommodative insufficiency (where the eye is unable to focus properly).
