To address refractive defects such myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), presbyopia (age-related nearsightedness), and astigmatism, refractive surgery is used (blurred vision in all directions). By altering the cornea's curvature, which is what causes refraction in the eye, refractive surgery enhances eyesight. Refractive error must be endured when the layer of the cornea or lens develops an irregular shape. A relatively common refractive problem that causes things to appear blurry or distorted is astigmatism. An ophthalmologist will initially recommend eyeglasses, contact lenses, or occasionally refractive surgery to address astigmatism.

Option of refractive surgery for astigmatism

  • Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK): In this procedure, the cornea's outer layer of cells is excised, and the cornea is subsequently laser-reshaped. Dry eyes or a thin cornea can benefit from this surgery.
  • Laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK): During this procedure, a tiny flap is used to reshape the cornea of your eye. When you are having problems with a thick cornea, this surgery can be a suitable choice.
  • Small Incision Lenticule Extraction (SMILE): During this procedure, a laser is used to mould a segment of cornea into the shape of a disc beneath the surface of the eye. The disc is then extracted through a small corneal incision. Additionally, this procedure is effective for treating minor astigmatism and nearsightedness.
