Lasik for astigmatism? Is it possible? Yes. As a matter of fact, recent improvements in lasers let many people with large diopter astigmatisms have successful Lasik surgery in one treatment with Wavefront Lasik.

Lasik eye surgery for astigmatism

During your treatment, the Lasik surgeon can use his or her skills and the latest equipment to correct astigmatism. Changing the curvature of the cornea allows light to enter the eyes at the precise angle necessary for perfect vision. The procedure is not painful, and the person often returns to normal activities within two weeks or so.

Lasik for astigmatism makes the cornea more even instead of oblong. These changes permanently fix the issue with blurriness and trouble seeing close up or far away. You may end up with more lines of sight.
