Correcting Astigmatism in Dallas
Being dependent on glasses means you might struggle to find your glasses in the morning when you wake up, getting out of the shower, or in many other instances. Because eyeglasses can easily be lost or damaged, they are inconvenient to clean and maintain, and are costly to replace, they can be a hassle. Not to mention, many people don’t like the look or feel of glasses and prefer other types of vision correction, like contact lenses. The “Toric” contact lenses are an excellent option to treat astigmatism, but some users find them uncomfortable and have a hard time adjusting to wearing them.
If you have astigmatism, you may be discouraged there are fewer vision correction options available to you. However, you have several surgical options to treat it, from LASIK to astigmatism keratectomy, or limbal relaxing incisions. If you have a cataract(s) in addition to astigmatism, you have the additional option of having an implantable lens, which treats astigmatism and cataracts in the same procedure. Your eye doctor will help determine which option is suited to your unique needs. We currently offer the ACRYSOF® IQ TORIC IOL & Johnson and Johnson Eyhance Toric lenses.
