Richbron,
Can you see it right? Does enhancement really help? I have this terrible stigmatism in my right eye. I believe it is regular astigmatism because it is little blur and I see ghosting on my right eye.
Just like Glenn said, If you have irregular astigmatism, you will see ghosting everywhere every direction.

So I don't think you have irregular astigmatism.

Not exactly everywhere and in every direction, but in more than one location in the visual field.

Glenn,
Then is it like seeing two ghostings from one light source? Is that what irregular stigmatism? For example, seeing 3 ghostings around light?

A single doubled ghost image may indicate regular astigmatism. Multiple images may indicate irregular astigmatism, but all may also indicate dry eyes, uneven epithelium, edema, or other issues. This is why analysis by a competent doctor is so important.
