Can Lasik fix astigmatism?

Posted by mita | 1:29 PM |


LASIK astigmatism is related to Astigmatic patients. Where Astigmatism indicates unequal refractive power of the cornea of the eye.  It may be associated with Myopia or  Hypermetropia. A surgery was performed named Astigmatic Keratomy PARK (Excimer Laser Photoastigmatic Refractive Keratectomy)  for astigmatic correction. But now, LASIK is widely performed for instead of that.

The result after surgery isn't noticeable, so it's very important to discuss with surgeon freely before making any decision on surgery. Basically, LASIK is the best option for Myopia and Hyperopia without astigmatism because most of the  Lasik Astigmatic patients complain about enhancement correction, and some complains about blurring of vision after surgery. On the other side, most of the patients said that they  couldn't get  better uncorrected visual acuity (without wearing eye glasses or contact lenses).

So, can Lasik fix astigmatism is one unsolved issue.
