Types of Astigmatism Surgery and Costs in Nebraska

If you've been diagnosed with astigmatism, you may be wondering about the types of astigmatism surgery and costs in Nebraska. Astigmatism is a condition where the eye is shaped like a football. Vision is distorted due to this abnormal shaping. Astigmatism surgery corrects the problem by giving the eye a more rounded shape. Astigmatism can be corrected with glasses or contact lenses, so many insurance companies consider surgical correction to be an elective procedure. It's worth checking with your company to find out if they offer any coverage. If they do, you will need to find out who the participating providers are for your plan.

If you don't have insurance coverage for your astigmatism surgery, there are often payment plans available. These are more common with LASIK surgery in Nebraska, but some eye care centers will offer this kind of financing for all procedures. There are two main types of surgery that you can choose from for astigmatism. LASIK is by far the most common option. LASIK eye surgery is a simple outpatient procedure with a very short recovery time. After a LASIK procedure, patients are able to resume most activities within 24 hours, though some athletics should be avoided, and the patient will need to take care to keep water out of the eye.

The average price for LASIK eye surgery in Nebraska is between $1,500 and $3,000 per eye. It's important to talk to your doctor about your specific condition to get an accurate quote. Each procedure is unique to the patient, and the price will depend on your specific situation. When you're comparing prices for eye surgery in Nebraska, make sure that you choose a reputable doctor.

Patients who are not eligible for LASIK surgery have one other option in Nebraska. This is known as astigmatic keratotomy eye surgery. With this procedure, two incisions are made on the surface of the eye. These incisions relax the shape of the eye so that it can form a rounded shape rather than an oval. This is an outpatient procedure, but patients usually experience more discomfort than with LASIK. Recovery can take several weeks. This procedure is very rare with the popularity of LASIK so you will need to talk to your ophthalmologist for an accurate price quote. This is usually a more expensive option than LASIK.
