Lehi, Utah -

Waite Vision, located in Lehi, Utah, is pleased to share an article that conclusively answers if LASIK can fix astigmatism. Waite Vision is the premier vision correction center in Utah where every patient receives customized treatment, and their mission is simple — to empower everyone with visual freedom.

Astigmatism is a common and treatable imperfection in the curvature of the eye that causes blurred distance and near vision. Astigmatism occurs when either the front surface of the eye (cornea) or the lens inside the eye has mismatched curves. When there is a particularly pronounced cylinder-shaped curve on the front surface of the eye, one is said to have a steep or strong astigmatism. It manifests in patients with signs and symptoms such as blurry vision, eye strain, headaches, squinting and problems with night vision. In the past, the only way to increase visual acuity was to wear corrective lenses, such as glasses or special contacts called toric lenses that corrected the refractive error caused by astigmatism.

Astigmatism can be a considerable issue for those who are living with the condition, and many who seek treatment might be under the wrong impression that LASIK eye surgery cannot help with the condition. However, the truth is LASIK is the one of the most effective and efficient ways to treat astigmatism and nearsightedness (myopia).

Modern LASIK surgery technology has come a long way, and scientists have worked hard to produce therapies with impressive success rates for those who suffer from nearsightedness (myopia), far-sightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism. Modern excimer lasers give LASIK surgeons more options for treating patients with mild to moderate astigmatism, and also brand-new procedures. For instance, SMILE, implantable contact lenses (EVO ICL), refractive lens exchange (RLE), and PRK have been developed especially with astigmatism in mind.

Waite Vision says, “Misinformation about LASIK not being able to treat astigmatism might have deterred thousands of people with astigmatism from enjoying the benefits of clear vision sooner, and it’s unfortunately a common thing we have heard from our patients. Many people may have freed themselves from glasses or contacts because their astigmatism can be corrected with LASIK eye surgery, and we want to ensure everyone knows and seeks out the right treatment for themselves. Call our office today to schedule your initial consultation and see if LASIK or another type of vision correction procedure is right for you. It’s time to focus on your life!”
