Question

 

 

 

Hi,

I'm 16 and an aspiring opthalmologist but I have bad eyesight myself. I'm long-sighted and have astigmatism. Can astigmatism affect my dream career?

I have no diseases, have had no eye surgeries but I wear glasses.

My longisightness has been improving but I worry about my astigmatism.

I can see perfectly with two eyes open, just not with one eye covered.

Thanks

Thanks for your Question
 
It is not a big problem to have astigmatism and in case your vision is 20/20 with glasses, it won't affect your career as an ophthalmologist You can either wear glasses or at age 19 you can do lasik.
