Patients with astigmatism are encountered virtually every day by practicing clinicians. This paper consists of an extensive literature review of the theories of astigmatism development, from both a mechanical and functional aspect. It is a goal of this work to present a broad view of the field which can be useful in day to day encounters with astigmatic patients.
