If there’s a single question we receive most frequently, it’s this: “Can I still experience life-changing benefits of corrective eye surgery if I have an astigmatism?” In a word, yes.

An astigmatism is a common vision condition that causes blurred vision. It occurs when the cornea (the clear front cover of the eye) is irregularly shaped or sometimes because of the curvature of the lens inside the eye. While this condition should be treated, it does not disqualify you as a candidate for the vision correction procedures offered at Florida Vision Institute.
