Types of Astigmatism Surgery and Costs in Idaho An Overview

Astigmatism is a defect in the eye that causes blurring in the vision. The defect creates a difficulty in the eye's ability to focus on a point object, often due to curvature of the lens or cornea. Scarring often causes the issue to arise as well. Luckily, there are numerous types of astigmatism surgery and costs in Idaho are dropping to affordable levels and in many cases are actually covered by some insurance plans. As a result, understanding a bit more about your options will help you decide whether or not this form of surgery is a good call for you to make.

The methods of treating astigmatism vary, but in most cases surgery is the best option. There are several types of astigmatism surgery and costs in Idaho will vary depending upon which form of surgery you have performed. Most of the options involve the use of a laser and are far less invasive than they once were. PRK is one option that involves the reshaping of the cornea with a laser. It's not usually the first option, but may be one your doctor suggests. LASEK utilizes the laser to create a flap that preserves the cell layers over the cornea and still reshapes the cornea as needed.

LASIK is similar and shapes the deeper layers of the eye's cornea without creating the flap. It's generally the most popular of the various types of astigmatism surgery and costs in Idaho for this form of surgery are usually lower than most people realize. It may not be available for all conditions, however. Conductive Keratoplasty is one of the newer options available and is still in experimental stages. It utilizes radio frequencies to modify the shape of the cornea. All of these options are worth considering and your ophthalmologist will be able to help you determine the right one for you.

When reviewing the different types of astigmatism surgery in Idaho, the cost is usually one of the first questions that one asks. Luckily, today the price of most of these surgeries is lower than people realize and usually is covered at least in part by most insurance plans. Overall costs vary, but according to most data the costs average out to between five and six hundred dollars per eye in most cases, with more extreme surgeries costing more. Again, an ophthalmologist will be able to help explain the costs more precisely.
