Astigmatism Surgery and Astigmatism Correction

Toric Intraocular Lens Implant correcting corneal astigmatism

Astigmatism is a common and completely treatable imperfection in the eye’s curvature which results in distorted images. This refractive error is not an eye disease or eye health problem, but merely a fixable issue with how the eye focuses light. Astigmatisms are very common with over 3 million cases per year in the US alone.

Astigmatism Surgery Options

If you have significant astigmatism the doctors at the Fort Lauderdale Eye Institute can help you find a solution.  We specialize in astigmatism surgery and trusted astigmatism correction procedures.

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

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