Types of Astigmatism Surgery and Costs in New York All About New York Astigmatism Surgery

Astigmatism is a minor eye condition that makes the person affected need vision correction. People used to be relegated to just wearing glasses or special contacts, but in the past few years, using astigmatism surgery to correct the issue has become very popular. There are several different surgical procedures that your eye surgeon can use to correct your astigmatism. It may feel overwhelming when first faced with the decision, but your eye surgeon and your budget can help narrow the choices down to one.

Getting astigmatism surgery is not something that is medically necessary. As such, there is no insurance coverage available for it. You can use a health-savings account to pay for it though if you have one. In New York, astigmatism surgery can be very expensive, depending on the type of procedure you have done. It can run anywhere from $1,500 per eye to $6,500 per eye. That is something to keep in mind when figuring out if you can afford the procedure or not.

As previously mentioned, there are several different types of astigmatism surgery available to those who live in New York. The different types are: AK (astigmatic keratotomy), LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis), PRK (photorefractive keratectomy), LASEK (laser epithelial keratomileusis), and LTK (laser thermokeratoplasty). AK is just a traditional, non-laser surgery for astigmatism. The surgeon will use a blade to make an incision or two in the cornea so that it will relax and take on a rounder shape. This usually corrects the astigmatism. LASIK is a procedure where the surgeon uses a laser to scrape the surface of the cornea and then create a flap, exposing the inner corneal tissue, so that the surgeon can reshape the cornea and correct the problem.

PRK is a procedure where the surgeon reshapes the corneal tissue with an ultra-violet light and does not have to cut or scrape the eye at all. LASEK is the surgical procedure that is kind of a mixture of LASIK and PRK. During LASEK, the surgeon uses a laser to create a flap so that they can reshape the cornea, but they do not have to cut or scrape the eye. Instead, a 20% alcohol solution is used to remove unneeded corneal tissue. LTK is a non-contact laser procedure that can reshape and shrink the cornea in just seconds. The only problem is that it is not long-lasting in its benefits. Your eye surgeon will assist you with determining which type of astigmatism surgery is the best one for you.
