Types of Astigmatism Surgery and Costs in North Carolina

Astigmatism is a condition that occurs commonly among many people. This condition causes blurry vision. There are many causes of astigmatism and this can vary from person to person, but it usually due to the shape of the cornea being off. This can make the shape of the lens distorted as well. Most people that have been diagnosed with astigmatism wear glasses or even contact lenses to correct their vision. Surgery is a good option for active people that are tired of wearing glasses or contacts to fix their vision. Laser surgery and other refractive surgeries are what would be usually performed to correct this condition. There are several different surgeries that can be performed on this condition. These surgeries include LASIK surgery, PRK surgery, LASEK surgery, astigmatism keratomileusis surgery and laser thermokeratoplasty surgery.

LASIK and LASEK surgeries are priced very similar to each other. Astigmatism surgery in North Carolina cost about $2,150 for each eye. This surgery is usually performed at a surgery eye center. It usually takes longer to recover from LASEK surgery than with LASIK surgery. The vision correction and clarity can arrive later than with LASIK as well. Inflammation is a common occurrence with this type of surgery and can be helped by using anti-inflammatory eye drops.

The most common of all the surgeries performed on those with astigmatism are LASIK and LASEK surgeries. Both of these surgeries use a laser to cut a flap in the opening of the cornea tissue to get to the cornea. LASIK surgery removes the lens and the cornea reshaped. The surgeon closes the flap before the surgery is over. With LASEK surgery, the surgeon replaces the lens before the surgery is over.. A thinner lens is cut with the LASEK surgery as well.

Some insurance will cover astigmatism surgery, and some will not. Usually this is a last resort surgery when other treatments have failed. Treatment can include contacts or glasses. There are other financial options for patients if insurance does not cover the cost of astigmatism surgery. Payment plans can be made or other financial companies can provide credit that can be used towards this surgery. This type of surgery can correct vision problems and help a person to see correctly. A person can have nearsightedness, farsightedness along with astigmatisms and still be a good candidate for this type of surgery. This type of surgery is usually successful on people with astigmatism.
