If there’s one 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 condition in which the cornea becomes misshapen, or “deflated”. We recommend that you have this condition treated, but it certainly does not disqualify you as a candidate for the vision correction procedures offered at Yavitz Eye Center.

So…what’s the next step? Schedule a consultation – Our doctors will assess whether or not you have an astigmatism as well as how the condition could affect your eligibility for a certain procedure – 98% of the time, it presents no problem at all.
