How Lasik Can Help Astigmatism’s
Astigmatism is caused by the changing of the curvature of the cornea and is one of the most common vision disorders. What many people donâ€™t know is that astigmatism can be effectively corrected through Lasik eye surgery. A normal cornea is round where a cornea with astigmatism is oblong, similar to a football which causes vision to be blurry and distorted.
When treating an astigmatism with Lasik eye surgery laser pulses are used to flatten the steeper curve of the cornea. This process will reduce the oblong shape and make it more round which will enhance the capability of the eye to focus light more efficiently and thus giving you better vision. It’sÂ important to remember that with a process such as this, vision might not be fully repaired and sometimes reading glasses are still necessary, but very unlikely.
