Hi, it’s Matt Russell from VSON Laser Vision Specialists. In this post I answer the question, ‘Can I have laser eye surgery if I have astigmatism?’
If you have astigmatism and want to be free from glasses and contact lenses, I have some good news for you.
When people say, “I have too much astigmatism to do laser eye surgery”, actually 99.9% of the time, they are wrong. We can treat up to four units of astigmatism. Some lasers can actually do up to five units of astigmatism. If you’ve got more than five units of astigmatism, you are off the scale and are unique. That’s incredibly rare. We have some great laser eye surgery alternatives if this is the case.
To learn more about laser eye surgery for astigmatism, and know which eye surgical treatment is best to free you from the hassle of glasses and contact lenses, then please book online for a free laser vision assessment on our website today.
