There are a few different variables that determine if LASIK is a viable method of correction for you. Our eye care experts will run a series of procedures that will make sure that LASIK is a good option for you. If you want to know if you are a good candidate for LASIK, come visit San Antonio Eye Pros. 

 

Can LASIK make my vision worse? 

 

While there are slight risks associated with the LASIK procedure, complications are extremely rare. LASIK is very safe and widely accepted by the ophthalmology community. Vision loss is possible as a result of LASIK but is very unlikely. It is also possible for an irregular astigmatism to occur during the LASIK healing process. In some cases, irregular astigmatism is unable to be corrected with eyeglasses or contact lenses and additional surgery will be required to correct the blurry/ distorted vision. Patients who have their LASIK consultation at San Antonio Eye Professionals will be referred to the finest ophthalmologists in the area who have a proven track record of performing successful LASIK procedures.

Can LASIK fix my astigmatism?

 

A common question patients have about LASIK is “Can LASIK fix astigmatism?” Not all astigmatism cases are able to be corrected by LASIK. However, in most cases a LASIK procedure will be able to correct refractive errors caused by astigmatism. Most astigmatism is caused when the eye is shaped more like a football than a sphere. This shape prevents light rays from being focused onto the retina. LASIK can be used to reshape the eye into a shape that is more conducive to clear vision.
