Astigmatism - Causes and Risk Factors

The cause of astigmatism is often unknown. Astigmatism is usually present from birth. A small degree of astigmatism is considered normal and usually does not require any correction. Though rare, astigmatism may be caused by chronic vigorous eye rubbing (such as in children with allergic conjunctivitis) or by cornea diseases such as keratoconus.
