I have astigmatism, so does that mean I’m not suitable for laser eye surgery?

Astigmatism is a common condition, which is slightly more complex to treat than short-sightedness and long-sightedness because it requires correction in more than one plane.

And it’s likely that you’ve been advised that it’s not possible to correct astigmatism with laser eye surgery.

Well, that may have been true in the past, but technology – and knowledge – have advanced, leading to new, effective treatments being developed. Today, it is possible for people with astigmatism to be treated, and enjoy similar results to those with other conditions, such as short- or long-sightedenss.
