Terms & Properties

Concept Unique Identifier (CUI): C0004106

Semantic Type: Disease or Syndrome

HPO Definition: Astigmatism describes a refractive error characterized by a difference in the horizontal and vertical curvature of the cornea. [DDD:ncarter, HPO:probinson]

MSH Definition: Unequal curvature of the refractive surfaces of the eye. Thus a point source of light cannot be brought to a point focus on the retina but is spread over a more or less diffuse area. This results from the radius of curvature in one plane being longer or shorter than the radius at right angles to it. (Dorland, 27th ed)

CSP Definition: optical defect in which refractive power is not uniform in all directions (meridians); light rays entering the eye are bent unequally by different meridians, which prevents formation of a sharp image focus on the retina.

HPO_COMMENT The irregular curvature associated with astigmatism means that the optical system is not symmetric about the optical axis. Most commonly the cornea is affected such that the refractive power in one meridian is less than that of the perpendicular axis. Astigmatism of significant degree causes blurry vision. HPO
