Types of Astigmatism Surgery and Costs in Virginia

What is astigmatism? Most people can understand the concepts of being nearsighted or farsighted. The term astigmatism can be the one that trumps most. This is a very common condition for people who need corrective lenses. For people without astigmatism, the curve of the cornea is regular and rounded. For those with astigmatism, the curve of the cornea is somehow irregular or distorted. The more distortion, the more astigmatism a person is said to have. Almost all types of astigmatism need corrective lenses. However, some people want a more permanent way to fix this problem. That is why astigmatism surgery is becoming more common. With a bit of research you will see all the different types of astigmatism surgery available in Virginia.

What are the most common types of astigmatism surgery? Those with astigmatism commonly have three different types of surgery available to them: LASIK, PRK, and LASEK. Each has its own advantages. The LASIK procedure involves creating a flap at the stroma level of the cornea covering. The LASEK makes a flap at the epithelium level. The PRK involves removing the epithelium completely. All of these techniques involve lasers that reshape the cornea to correct vision problems. For LASEK and LASIK, the flaps go back down over the eye after the laser reshaping. With PRK, the surgeon puts a contact lens bandage over the area until the epithelium grows back.

Are there other forms of astigmatism surgery in Virginia? Some people are reluctant to go under the knife just to get better eyesight. One option to avoid this is CK, or conductive keratoplasty. With this procedure, surgeons use radio frequency instead of lasers to reshape the cornea. With the radio frequency, the surgeon changes the shape of the eye by shrinking collagen around the edges of the cornea. For people with very thin corneas, an option is AK or astigmatic keratotomy. This procedure involves placing incisions on the surface of the cornea helps to reform the shape of the eye.

How much does astigmatism surgery cost in Virginia? The range of prices on astigmatism costs in Virginia is actually quite wide. It can run between $1500 and $3000 per eye. The price range happens due to the differences in technologies, experience, location, and other factors. Talking with your doctor is the best way to figure out the cost of astigmatism surgery in your case.
