LASIK has been around since the 1970s. However, it hasn’t been until the past decade or so that it’s become effective for people with astigmatism. Advancements in technology and medicine allow ophthalmologists to perform LASIK on patients with astigmatisms, giving patients a new lease on life.
We sat down with our patient Christie to hear about her journey with astigmatism and learn about how LASIK helped correct it. Astigmatism is the irregular curve of the lens or cornea that can cause your vision to be blurred and distorted. We walked Christie through the surgical process to help her see without the need of corrective lenses.
