I Have Astigmatism—Am I a Good Candidate for LASIK?

Ophthalmologist & LASIK Surgeon Serving Chicago, Lombard & Naperville areas of Illinois

Posted: October 24, 2017

Many adults with astigmatism don’t think they qualify for LASIK eye surgery. The FDA-approved excimer lasers our eye surgeon in Chicago uses can correct the curvature of your cornea down to .25 microns. Vision correction procedures such as LASIK and PRK can fix nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Our LASIK patient who had astigmatism are often amazed at how well they can see following their procedure because their brain had to compensate due to the irregularly shaped cornea up until their vision correction. Learn more from Dr. Foulkes in the video below.
