Do you or someone you know suffer from headaches, eyestrain, squinting, and distorted or blurred vision? If so, you may suffer from astigmatism, but do not fret! Astigmatism is not a disease it is merely a refractive error, caused by an irregularly shaped cornea which hinders how your eye absorbs light. Lucky for you, in this day and age there are many ways on how to fix astigmatism! You will find three of these ways listed below.
One way to fix astigmatism is through a procedure called Customvue Wavefront Laser Vision Correction, or Lasik eye surgery. Through Lasik eye surgery, we are able to reshape the cornea, which in turn decreases or completely eliminates the refractive error of the eye, aka the astigmatism.
Another way is through Limbal Relaxing Incisions, or LRI. In LRI, small incisions are made at opposite ends of the cornea. Once the incisions heal the cornea becomes more spherical in shape and helps to reduce or eliminate astigmatism.
The last way we are going to cover is through the use of Toric Implantable Lenses. These are premium intraocular lenses that correct not only astigmatism, but also near and farsightedness. These lenses are able to correct astigmatism, because they have different powers in different meridians of the lens. The surgeon is able to adjust the orientation of the lens inside the eye by using the alignment markings on the peripheral lens, optimizing astigmatism correction.
If you believe you may be suffering from astigmatism, help is here. There is no need to suffer any longer! Through Customvue Wavefront Laser Vision Correction, Limbal Relaxing Incisions, and Toric Implantable Lens, there are plenty of ways to fix astigmatism.
