To some degree, astigmatism affects about two-thirds of people and at any age.  This causes blurry vision at all distances, and is the result of the eye being not perfectly round (the ideal) but instead is shaped more like a football (astigmatism).  Easily corrected with glasses, astigmatism can often also be treated by laser surgery or contact lenses.
