We've spent a little time talking about Astigmatism, what it is, and some of the ways we can treat it. Did you see Dr. White's video on our Youtube channel, Skyvision105? Here's a LINK to his latest "At the Dr. Whiteboard", Astigmatism 101. Be sure to check back, too--we hear there are a few bloopers that are real doozies!
LINK for animated videos that describe how they work.
When you have astigmatism in your prescription we can correct it, and remove your blurry vision, by putting the prescription right on the surface of your eye. We put the correction on your corneal, the window to the eye. This is a permanent correction and can be done for many types of astigmatism. You can actually choose NOT TO WEAR GLASSES after LASIK for astigmatism!
