How Does Laser Eye Surgery Help Astigmatism?
Mr Glenn Carp – In patients with astigmatism, if they have regular astigmatism which can be treated by laser. They will have a cornea which is shaped somewhat more like a rugby ball which is steep on one side and very flat over the other. In these patients, the laser is able to reshape the cornea correcting for the steepness in one direction and therefore leaving the cornea in a much more regular, rounded, spherical shape, which allows for the correction in vision.
