Abstract

Astigmatism is the most common vision problem. Sometimes astigmatism may accompany nearsightedness or far-sightedness. It's caused by an irregularly shaped cornea. A person may have blurred vision which causes headaches or eyestrain. As a result a person with stigmatism has lot of problems reading/writing static text. A person under this condition is force to read/white and be as productive as a person with normal vision. Computers do not offer a solution to a person that has astigmatism. A person with astigmatism can see moving objects better then a person without stigmatism therefore can absorb and correct information if the objects are moving. If the operating systems offer a way to store words that are confuse or close in spelling (ex: car vs cur the two words are correct in English but have different meanings) then as the person types any of this words in a operating system the words can start moving up, down, left, write, etc. A person with astigmatism can see and correct the spelling of the words a lot faster if they are moving.
