Astigmatism Surgery in Florida – Types of Astigmatism Surgery and Costs in Florida

With all the beauty Florida has to offer, from white sandy beaches to lush sub-tropical landscapes, good eyesight is a must. However, astigmatism can put a damper on all the sights to see in the Sunshine State. Astigmatism refers to an abnormally shaped cornea. The good news is that today’s medical advances and technology for correcting astigmatism through surgery are widely available in Florida. The types of astigmatism surgery and costs in Florida vary according to what doctors are doing the treatment. These surgeries come under the heading of refractive surgery, which simply means it is a vision repair surgery. Astigmatism surgery in Florida is available in five main variations and prices have been rising over the past decade.

First, astigmatism surgery in Florida can be accomplished through LASIK (laser insitu keratomileusis) surgery. This is the most popular astigmatism surgery in the state. Lasers are used to reshape the cornea by shaving minute amounts from the corneal surface. During this surgery, the surgeon creates a flap on the side of the cornea, allowing the tissue beneath the cornea to be shaped by the lasers. Second, PRK (photorefractive keratectomy) surgery also uses lasers to shape the cornea. The difference is that during this surgery, the lasers do not cut into the cornea. The shaping is done on the surface. A pulsing ultraviolet light shines on the cornea during PRK surgery. The average costs of LASIK and PRK range from $1,700 to $2,300 per eye, though it is possible to find LASIK surgery for around $1,200 per eye. Within a practice, PRK is usually a little more expensive than LASIK.

Third, LASEK (a laser epithelial keratomileusis) combines the methods used in LASIK and PRK astigmatism surgery in Florida and is priced similarly. During this procedure, the surgeon does not cut into the cornea, but forms a flap in the epithelial with a 20% alcohol solution. Fourth, LTK (laser thermokeratoplasty) utilizes heat in the cornea shaping process. This shrinks and reshapes the cornea into the correct position. Fifth, AK (astigmatic keratotomy) surgery is most commonly used when the cornea is stretched out in a football shape. An incision is made with a blade rather than lasers to relax the cornea back to the naturally round shape. LTK and AK surgeries are rarely used, and cost around $2,000 per eye on average.

Choices of the types of astigmatism surgery and costs in Florida can greatly differ according to what practice you choose. When deciding on where to go, it is important to ask what is included in the price quoted to you. Lower priced practices may legitimately have lower operating and overhead costs. However, there may also be hidden costs that are not being included in the price quote. Lower prices are typically more readily available in larger cities, like Jacksonville and Miami, where competition is greater.
