Treatment of astigmatism

The human eye is a complex system of natural lenses. When light beams pass through these lenses, they focus at a specific point on the retina to create a sharp image. Astigmatism is a condition caused by an irregular shape of the cornea or the lens which prevents the eye from focusing light evenly.

Excimer offers all you need to forget astigmatism once and for all!

You will be offered the best method of treatment based on integrated optical examination using advanced diagnostics equipment.

Laser vision correction

The most popular method of astigmatism correction these days is laser vision correction. The reason is simple: in 5 minutes or so you get a 100% vision for many years to come!

recommended for

  • People with astigmatism of up to ±5,0 D

Recommended age for correction is 18 to 45. In all cases, correction shall be greenlighted by your attending doctor with respect to the case specifics.

brief description of the method

Astigmatism vision correction is essentially laser-assisted reshaping the cornea according to the precalculated values to improve optical parameters and make the optical focus clear.

result

The patients regain normal vision as early as in 1,5 to 2 hours after the correction. As compared to spectacles and contact lenses, laser correction solves the problem of impaired vision once and for all, without the need for any additional vision-enhancing contraptions.

Refractive lens exchange (lensectomy)

Best choice for patients with severe myopia!

recommended for

  • People with astigmatism of up to ±3,0 D.

Recommended for patients aged 45 and above. However, this procedure is also available to the patients of other age groups. In all cases, refractive lens exchange shall be greenlighted by your attending doctor with respect to the case specifics.

brief description of the method

Lensectomy as a method of astigmatism treatment consists in exchanging the natural eye lens for an artificial intraocular toric lens.

result

Intraocular toric lens implantation helps you eliminate astigmatism and other eye diseases such as cataract or presbyopia (age-related farsightedness) and enjoy a new quality of vision!

Optical astigmatism correction

recommended for

  • People with astigmatism of up to ±6,0 D.

Recommended for patients aged 45 and above. However, this procedure is also available to the patients of other age groups. In all cases, refractive lens exchange shall be greenlighted by your attending doctor with respect to the case specifics.

brief description of the method

The most widely used method of optical correction for astigmatism is spectacles with cylindrical lenses to adjust them for nearsightedness or farsightedness as needed.

Glasses with complex cylindrical lenses are selected and prescribed by your doctor only after a thourough examination and diagnostics of the optical system. It is important to keep in mind that incorrectly selected glasses may contribute to the worsening of your vision and lead to degenerative eye conditions!

recommended for

Toric front-surface contact lenses – astigmatism of up to ±4,5 D.

Toric back-surface contact lenses – astigmatism of up to ±6,0 D.

brief description of the method

Toric lenses are specially made for contact correction of astigmatism. Such lenses are thicker than the regular ones, being at the same time spherical and cylindrical. Either front surface or back surface of the lens may be shaped so as to have a toric surface.

Toric contact lenses are selected and prescribed by your doctor only after a thourough examination and diagnostics of the optical system.

It is important to keep in mind that incorrectly selected glasses may contribute to the worsening of your vision and lead to degenerative eye conditions! Your doctor will also give you advice on how to use these lenses.
