St. Louis, Missouri -
The leading vision correction center in the St. Louis area, Brinton Vision, recently released an article discussing whether or not LASIK can treat astigmatism. According to Brinton, LASIK can treat astigmatism despite the widespread notion that it cannot. Unfortunately, many patients may have missed out on having the life-changing procedure sooner because of this misinformation. LASIK is the most common procedure for correcting nearsightedness and astigmatism.
The article explains how astigmatism is an imperfection in the cornea’s curvature. These imperfections distort light entering the eyes, causing refractive errors. Blurred vision, headaches, and difficulty seeing at night are just some of the symptoms of astigmatism. Before modern innovations in refractive surgery techniques, the only options to treat astigmatism were to wear thick glasses or contact lenses.
The article also notes that modern excimer lasers not only give LASIK surgeons more options for treating patients with mild to moderate astigmatism but also entirely new techniques like SMILE, implantable contact lenses (EVO ICL), Custom Lens Replacement (previously known as refractive lens exchange, or RLE), and advanced surface ablation (ASA/advanced PRK). These techniques were developed primarily with astigmatism in mind.
Brinton Vision also answers some of the most frequently asked questions about treating astigmatism with LASIK. The article addresses whether there is an astigmatism limit that LASIK can treat, can LASIK cause astigmatism to develop or reoccur, and whether there are types of astigmatism that LASIK can’t cure.
