How many years have you been unable to do the things you love due to poor vision from astigmatism? Is fear preventing you from eye surgery for astigmatism? The following information will help guide you to understanding the options available.

LASIK surgery

This refractive eye surgery treatment is well-favored around the globe. LASIK is for correction of any visual disorder, whether you have farsightedness, nearsightedness or astigmatism. This is an outpatient procedure where a laser is used to create a flap on the surface of the cornea, under the flap, the excimer laser is used to reshape the corneal surface, and then the flap is repositioned in place. LASIK eye surgery recovery time is faster with minimal discomfort. Typically, the patient can enjoy improved vision in just a few days following the procedure.

LASEK (a modified form of PRK)

LASEK or laser-assisted sub-epithelial keratomileusis is another method advised to individuals with very thin or steep corneas. The eye surgeon uses a solution to loosen the outer surface of cornea known as the epithelium, the laser is used to reshape the cornea, the flap is then repositioned in place.

PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy)

PRK unlike the previous treatments mentioned no flap is created. The excimer laser is performed directly to the outer layer of the patient’s cornea to modify its shape. PRK is an option for patients with thin corneas.

Recommendation:

Getting the right eye treatment can feel overwhelming at times. When conducting research online, search for key words like “laser eye surgery Chicagoland”, to find top accredited surgeons with years of experience like Dr. Mitchell Jackson at JacksonEye to provide an in-depth evaluation.
