Can astigmatism be trained away? Yes it can and often quickly.

What is astigmatism?

Is astigmatism something that's inherited or something you are born with? That is is what most optometrist an ophthalmologists believe. Treatment consists of correction with optics. In the case of astigmatism it is cylindrical elements placed in front of the eye to compensate for the distortion. Of course the optic correction do not actually do anything for the astigmatism itself.

The astigmatic eye has two focal points. One on the retina and one in front producing shadows behind letters.

Is there a way to correct astigmatism naturally?

If we think of astigmatism as an unequal tension pattern among the four muscles located in front of your eyeball. Think of a tent, the old fashioned one, with four wires. If one wire is tighter than the rest your tent will tilt. Astigmatism is like that, if one of these muscles is less flexible or hold more tension. Then that muscle will pull your cornea, which is normally a perfect dome, out of shape so it becomes more like an oval.

Astigmatism is like a stiff shoulder.

Astigmatism is like having a stiff shoulder.

Assuming that tension is the main cause of astigmatism, then releasing the tension in the eye muscles ought to cure the astigmatism.
