Chicago Astigmatism Correction with Cataract Surgery, LASIK, and Contact Lenses

Patients who see an Ophthalmologist for Vision Improvement with Lasik, Cataract Surgery, or Contact Lenses have many possibilities to correct Astigmatism, usually caused by the cornea or the windshield of the eye being shaped like a football rather than a basketball in Lasik is corrected by precisely sculpting the cornea with the Excimer Laser. With Cataract Treatment, Astigmatism can be corrected by Ophthalmologists with incision placement, special Astigmatism correcting lens implants, as well as with laser or manual incisions to improve irregularities of the cornea. Contact Lenses can accomplish similar corrections when carefully fitted by an Ophthalmologist.
