Can astigmatism be caused by something neurological, like a brain tumor or something like that?
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
No. There is NO WAY that astigmatism is from something neurological or from a brain tumor. It comes from the shape of your cornea or changes in your lens...
Floaters are from "clumps" in the vitreous inside your eye....nothing to worry about -- I've had them for 30 years.
The other symptoms? Not due to your eyes, but with the testing you have done it seems like you are on the right track.
