How LASIK Eye Surgery Can Treat Your Astigmatism

How LASIK Eye Surgery Can Treat Your Astigmatism

Astigmatism is a very common eye condition where the cornea has an asymmetrical shape that causes light to enter the eye at different angles to those entering a correctly shaped cornea.  This results in vision problems. Fortunately, LASIK and other laser eye surgeries can correct this vision problem. Additional Laser Eye Surgery? If you are near or farsighted as well as having astigmatism, and want vision correction surgery, it can be done in one simple, surgical procedure. The ultra-precise lasers used for LASIK and PRK surgery can be programmed to fully correct both vision problems.  Higher amounts of astigmatism, above 3.0 diopters, can also be corrected in a single procedure, although there is a small chance that you may need greater follower up to ensure precision. How Does LASIK Treat Astigmatism? LASIK addresses the problem of astigmatism by reshaping the cornea to make it either flatter or more steeply curved, depending on each individual case. By cutting the cornea to a more symmetrical shape, light will enter the eye correctly, focusing the rays in a single point in the correct area of the eye. This will remove the vision problems of astigmatism, which include blurry vision, distortion, poor night vision, eye irritation and headaches. Costs Of Correcting Astigmatism With LASIK The cost of correcting astigmatism is decided by each individual laser surgery center, so this may affect the cost of your procedure.  It’s important to discuss this with your surgeon during your eye exam.

Can Laser Eye Surgery Treat Astigmatism?

Can Laser Eye Surgery Treat Astigmatism?

If you have an astigmatism in your eye, you may have considered laser eye surgery to help you improve your lifestyle. The Laser Center of Coral Gables is the leading laser eye surgery clinic in Miami and we recommend LASIK for the correction of astigmatism. Corrective eye surgery isn’t just for astigmatism, it can correct other eye conditions as well. Do you have astigmatism? What are the astigmatism symptoms? If you haven’t yet visited a doctor to confirm whether or not you have it, you can look out for the following symptoms: Eye strain Squinting Blurry or fuzzy vision both far away and close up Headaches Be aware that these could be signs of other conditions, so it is important to check with your eye doctor. Are you a good candidate for astigmatism correction surgery? Unfortunately, laser eye surgery isn’t for just anyone. You need to meet a number of criteria before you will be considered. First of all, it is important to note how bad your astigmatism condition may be. High levels cannot be treated safely with lasers. Your age is also a factor, since your eyes will deteriorate with age. If you are too young, your eyes are still growing, so your prescription will continue to change as you get older. If your prescription has not changed for a couple of years, this works in your favor. You also must not be pregnant and must not be planning on becoming pregnant within the next six months to be considered a candidate for the surgery. LASIK can correct your astigmatism but there are minor risks involved. Since the eye is not a simple organ, you may come away from the surgery with less than 20/20 vision. It is important to research what the risks are and decide if the surgery is still right for you. Correcting your vision means, for most people, you no longer have to wear glasses or contact lenses. If you are interested in speaking to an eye doctor about laser eye surgery, contact us. We offer a free eye exam and can determine whether or not LASIK for astigmatism is the best option for...
