Astigmatism Surgery

Toric Intraocular Lens Implant correcting corneal astigmatism

If you have significant astigmatism the doctors at the Fort Lauderdale Eye Institute can help you.  We specialize in astigmatism surgery and astigmatism correction.  Depending on the severity of your condition, there are many different ways to correct astigmatism. During cataract surgery relaxing incisions (Astigmatic Keratometry) can be made in the cornea to treat astigmatism. Additionally, a toric lens implant can be placed at the time of cataract surgery to correct astigmatism.

Astigmatism Correction Methods

If you do not need cataract surgery, astigmatism can be corrected by laser vision correction (LASIK or Advanced Surface Ablation) or Astigmatic Keratometry.
