Types of Astigmatism Surgery and Costs in Arizona

Astigmatism is a common condition that many people have. It can cause blurry vision. The causes of astigmatism can vary from person to person, but is generally due to the irregularity in the shape of the cornea. This causes the eye lens to be shaped wrong as well. Many people with astigmatism wear contact lenses or glasses to correct their vision. For active people or those that are tired of wearing these items to correct their vision, surgery can be a good option. Laser surgery and other refractive surgeries can be performed to correct this condition. The different surgeries that can be performed on this condition include LASIK surgery, PRK surgery, LASEK surgery, astigmatism keratomileusis surgery and laser thermokeratoplasty surgery.

The most common of all the surgeries performed on those with astigmatism are LASIK and LASEK surgeries. Surgeries use a laser to cut a flap in the opening of the cornea tissue to reach the cornea. IN LASIK surgery the lens is removed and the cornea reshaped. The flap is closed and the surgery is over. With LASEK surgery, the lens is replaced before the flap is closed. A thinner lens is cut with the LASEK surgery as well. This helps keep the corneal stroma intact which will provide better results.

LASIK and LASEK surgeries are priced very similar to each other. Astigmatism surgery in Arizona cost about $2,150 for each eye. The surgery is generally performed at a surgery eye center. It usually takes longer to recover from LASEK surgery than with LASIK surgery. The vision clarity comes a bit slower as well. Inflammation is typically higher with this procedure as well, but can be easily treated by using anti-inflammatory eye drops.

Some insurance will cover astigmatism surgery, and some will not. Usually this is a last resort surgery when other treatments have failed. These treatments include glasses and contacts. Some rigid contacts are prescribed for this condition that can help to reshape the eye. If insurance does not cover the cost of astigmatism surgery, most eye surgery centers have other financial options available for their patients. Payment plans can be made or other financial companies can provide credit that can be used towards this surgery. Astigmatism can permanently correct disruptions in vision cause by astigmatism. A person can have nearsightedness, farsightedness along with astigmatisms and still be a good candidate for this type of surgery. The results are typically very good after the procedure has been performed.
