Astigmatism

About Astigmatism

Those seeking astigmatism correction have a common vision impairment caused by the shape of the eye. Ideally, the eye is round but those with astigmatism have eyes shaped more like a football. This distortion results in an overall blurriness and inability to see things sharply and clearly. Often, astigmatism correction is needed along with some degree of treatment for nearsightedness or farsightedness.

While there used to be no contacts to correct astigmatism, the recent advent of toric lenses have allowed for astigmatism correction while wearing contacts. Some, however, find this uncomfortable or too expensive over the course of a lifetime.

LASIK and Astigmatism

At LasikPlus, we offer a LASIK surgery for astigmatism. Our diagnostic equipment allows us to create an individualized treatment plan for your eye and the degree of astigmatism correction you need.

Since laser vision correction gently reshapes the cornea to improve refractive accuracy, the football shape of the cornea can be addressed during LASIK eye surgery. Astigmatism correction is not usually the only condition that needs to be addressed. That’s why LasikPlus is the perfect choice to transform the way you see the world by providing both nearsighted and farsighted as well as astigmatism correction all in one simple procedure.
