Can Astigmatism Be Treated with LASIK Surgery? | Poughkeepsie AstigmatismIf you suffer from astigmatism in one or both eyes, you know that your condition requires different treatment than other vision problems. You may be unsure whether or not LASIK is capable of correcting your vision. The good news is that LASIK, along with other laser-corrective surgical procedures, can correct most instances of astigmatism.

As with any laser corrective procedure, candidates for LASIK need to meet certain baseline requirements to be eligible for the surgery. If your corneas are too thin, or your vision has changed significantly in the last year, you may need to seek out other options, like ReSTOR toric intraocular lens implants. To learn which solution is the best for your personal situation, visit the ophthalmologists at Seeta Eye Care for an eye exam.

An eye exam will help your ophthalmologist:

  • Determine the prescription you need for glasses or contacts
  • Detect the presence of glaucoma, macular degeneration, or other conditions
  • Check your eyes for cataracts or signs of corneal scarring
  • Figure out the best corrective surgery option for you
