We asked this young person what made her go the OD. ( OD stands for optometrist and not overdose). For that would bring awareness to symptoms of astigmatism . She mentioned she had to squint a lot to see clearly. Inspite of her glasses. Sometimes she even had headaches. She had started wondering if she was developing migraines.

After ruminating for a few minutes she asked “Dr. Khanna, why was i getting headaches?”

In a typical doctor like fashion Dr.Khanna stepped back put his hands in his white coat said hmm and began. “Astigmatism is an imperfection of the eye. It leads to a distorted image of the world on the brain. This spoiled picture irritates the brain. It send instructions to the muscles of the eye to rectify the situation. The muscles fire to alter the curvature of the eye. There is no relief. The brain keeps working in despair. It generates a lot of lactic acid. This leads to pain. We feel the headache and sometimes which can be very severe.”

“The muscle action is the squint you observed. that is a last ditch effort of the cerebrum to see better. Squinting narrows the aperture of the eye creating a pin hole effect”
