double vision, due to astigmatism?

I agree with your statement. But it's not just me seeing double, but everyone else who have astigmatism and as long as the spherical correction is not too high to blur it.

It has always baffled me how double vision arises when astigmatism is present. I have software for analyzing the effect of different types of aberrations in optical systems....and double images just don't happen. It is something related downstream in the vision process...at the retina or beyond.
