Astigmatism is usually diagnosed by an eye exam. Treatment of astigmatism aims to improve eye vision and clarity. Major treatments of astigmatism include: Corrective Lenses:
  • Eyeglasses
  • Contact Lenses
Refractive Surgery: 
  • Laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK). With this procedure, your eye surgeon makes a thin, hinged flap in your cornea.
  • Laser-assisted subepithelial keratectomy (LASEK). The surgeon loosens the cornea's thin protective cover (epithelium) with a special alcohol.
  • Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK). This procedure is similar to LASEK, except the surgeon removes the epithelium. It will grow back naturally, conforming to your cornea's new shape.
  • Epi-LASIK.
