Astigmatism Surgery in Louisiana - Options for Astigmatism Surgery in Louisiana

Astigmatism is a vision problem. It means that the eye does not focus the light coming through the lens properly. Instead of focusing into a single point on the retina, multiple focal points are formed. These focus areas can be in front of the retina, behind it, or in both places. The cause of astigmatism is a misshapen cornea, where it is elongated instead of perfectly round. However, it can also be caused by distortion to the shape of the lens inside the eye (lenticular astigmatism). There are four types of astigmatism surgery in Louisiana for those who want options other than corrective lenses.

Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), Laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK), Laser-assisted sub epithelial keratomileusis (LASEK), and Radial keratotomy (RK) are the four main types of astigmatism surgery in Louisiana. PRK refers to a procedure where the epithelium is completely removed and the outermost part of the cornea shape is adjusted. With LASIK, the surgeon cuts a flap in the layers of the epithelium and uses lasers to shape the corneal surface. LASEK does the same thing, but a thinner layer of the epithelium is lifted by an alcohol solution while the lasers are reshaping the tissue beneath. When performing RK or Astigmatic Keratotomy (AK), the surgeon makes deep incisions with a diamond blade positioned similarly to the numbers on a clock. When this relieves the stress on an elongated cornea and allows it to reshape as it heals.

Choosing between the types of astigmatism in Louisiana will depend on the exact shape of the cornea and any other eye problems you have. Your surgical ophthalmologist can assess the condition of your eye and make a suggestion for the most effective type of surgery to correct your astigmatism. In Louisiana, there are local, independent practices, regional chains, and national chains which perform corrective eye surgery for astigmatism. You should not have to pay a fee to receive a price quote for a surgery type.

The costs of astigmatism surgery in Louisiana vary according to which type of surgery and the specific practice (doctor) you select to perform the procedure. The average cost for laser vision surgery for astigmatism in Louisiana around $2200 per eye. Some companies will quote potential patients a lower price than this, but this is often an illusion. There are typically additional fees and hidden costs. More technologically advanced, custom laser procedures will cost additional amounts. For PRK or RK, you can expect to pay between $1800 and $2500 per eye, depending on the provider.
