DO YOU OFTEN CONFUSE LETTERS AND NUMBERS WHILE READING?

Someone who is astigmatic has imprecise near and far vision. In particular, in peripheral vision images can sometimes appear deformed. Astigmatism may be combined with other eyesight problems such as hyperopia, myopia. Astigmatism is mainly caused by an irregular curvature of the cornea. As a result, the image is not formed properly on the retina, but distorted according to the curvature of the cornea. An astigmatic person has difficulty clearly distinguishing certain shapes and details, and seeing the contrasts between horizontal, vertical or oblique lines. This can result in confusion between letters and numbers such as O, D, Q, G, 6, 9 and 8. If a child has learning difficulties in literacy and numeracy, drawing or even writing on lines, it may be astigmatism. Given the consequences of astigmatism on a child’s evolution, it’s important to carry out a vision test regularly.
