Hubby has had BAD astigmatism since he was a kid. His lenses cost a lot. They have to put a lot of curve in his lenses.
I had a cataract in my right eye last time I went. The left eye cataract and astigmatism are new for me. Just a part of the aging process. Thankful they can fix it with glasses. He said the cataracts may eventually get large enough to require surgery, but not for a long time.
