Types of Astigmatism Surgery and Costs in Mississippi

Astigmatism is a condition that affects the eye’s ability to refract light and see an image correctly. There are two main types of astigmatism. Regular and irregular are the two main types. Irregular astigmatism is usually caused by the scarring of the lens. The regular astigmatism is caused by the shape of the cornea itself. It curves to a degree that causes a person to have different focal points when the look at something. This disruption in vision usually can be fixed with glasses. There are refractive surgeries that can be successfully done in order to correct this problem without wearing glasses or contacts.

The cost of astigmatism surgery in Mississippi can vary greatly according to the type of astigmatism and the degree at which a person has this condition. The surgery is a common surgery that changes the shape of either the lens or the cornea itself. There are several types of refractive surgery. A person can have laser eye surgery such as LASIK or LASEK as well as Keratotomy eye surgery. The most common is the laser surgery, because the risks are lowered and the successful outcome is increased.

When a person wants to correct their vision problem, they should talk about the different types of astigmatism surgeries with their doctor as well as weigh out the cost for each procedure. Many times insurance companies will cover the cost of the surgery depending on the insurance type. LASIK and LASEK are very similar in that they correct the astigmatism using a laser to reshape the cornea. The cornea is reached using the same method for both procedures. The difference in LASEK is the when the lens is cut out and removed; it is replaced after the cornea is replaced. In the LASIK surgery, the lens is discarded after it is removed.

Radial Keratotomy (RK) surgery is less common, because laser surgeries have become much easier and more cost effective alternatives. The surgery makes two slight incisions in the cornea. This creates a relaxing effect on the cornea, and then it softens to change shape. The recovery time for this type of surgery can be three months. Most people prefer the laser surgery, because it is less intrusive and the healing time is minimal when compared to RK surgery. Although the surgery only lasts about ten minutes per eye, it creates an incision with a blade instead of a laser, which can be less precise.
