    My vision is mildly blurred. I recently went to the eye doctor and
    found out that I have astigmatism. I got eyeglasses, and things are
    much clearer. However, when I tilt my head to the side, everything
    looks skewed. I was wondering if there are people here with
    astigmatism and can possibly please post their thoughts about this --
    whether it is normal or not -- and comments about astigmatism would
    also be helpful.

    By the way, my doctor says I just have to get used to the glasses, but
    seriously, how can you get used to the things having an oblique or
    slanting view? If I look straight without tilting my head everything
    is fine. Do people with astigmatism have to keep their heads perfectly
    straight and move like robots to avoid tilting?

    Thank you in advance. I look forward to resourceful responses.

  2. There are none...

    The asnwer the idiot-doctor gave you when he discovered your
    astigmatism, is just wrong.

    You simply have one particular eyemuscle which strains too much and
    puts the eye out of shape.

    You should learn how to relax that muscle and cure the astigmatism
    without glasses.

    There is no other answer possible.

    The glasses of your idiot-doctor are just injurious things you'd be
    better to trash quickly never to be put on again.

    You may have noticed that once your eyes "get accustomed", when you
    leav off the glasses, vision is MUCH poorer than before.

    You may also be able to notice that if you stay away from your glasses
    for few days, preferably staying in the open light of the sun, you
    will regain a measure of good eyesight without glasses.

    Now these things are real and you can test them very easily if you

    How these pompous professionals here can avoid to discuss these simple
    truths, is really insulting.

  3. Solution. Don't tilt your head

    Solution: just do as the terrorist do, keep a good kinfe and slice
    away your head.

    It won't tilt anymore, and a great butchery would have been performed
    again and again for the solace of the criminals who like it.

    That's a bit like the old joke when the guy goes to the doctor and
    says my ear hurts when I press just on the lobe here, and the doc
    replies "well don't press there then". Of course it isn't the answer.
    Moving one's head is a part of everyday living. I suppose they could
    have said to me when I complained that progressives meant blur to blur
    when looking right and left while crossing the road "well don't cross
    roads then". I didn't choose that option and got a refund.
