Astigmatism is another of the most common vision issues, causing blurred vision in those who suffer from it and sometimes severely impacting one’s quality of life. Cataracts are another very commonly-encountered vision issue, and refer to a condition that involves the clouding-over of the eye’s naturally occurring lens.

When experienced together, these vision issues can sometimes result in full and complete vision loss, causing blindness and resulting in a series of problems that can eventually become quite serious. New York Laser Vision offers a combined cataract surgery and astigmatism correction, treating two of the most common vision issues at the very same time.

Our commitment to technologically-advanced equipment and the employment of the latest procedures means we’ll restore your vision as completely as possible, enjoying you to once again enjoy a full quality of life.

Astigmatism Correction

When the cornea of your eye becomes slightly irregular, it causes a condition known as astigmatism, which keeps light from being properly focused on the retina located in the back of your eye. The result is a blurring of the vision, and this can happen regardless of whether or not you’re viewing something that’s up close or far away.

Astigmatism correction involves the use of a technique known as “refractive surgery,” employing a laser to gently reshape the curves of your cornea, allowing light to properly pass through it once more and restoring your vision to its former fullness in the process.

Lens replacement is another form of astigmatism treatment, and involves replacing your eye’s natural lens with an artificial contact lens, that can allow you to see properly once more.

Cataract Surgery

Surgery for the correction of cataracts involves the removal of the lens that has become clouded over and obscured as a result of the condition. This obstructed lens is then replaced with an artificial one, commonly referred to as an IOL or an intraocular lens. Standard lenses can be used, which tend to offer clear vision when viewing things at a distance, but often require glasses for up-close activities, such as reading.

Premium lenses, on the other hand, are designed to function both ways, offering clear vision both up-close and at a distance, and eliminating the need for further vision correction with things like glasses or contact lenses.

In some cases, the correction of astigmatism and cataracts can be performed at the same time, offering the patient more dramatic results, and a fuller restoration of their lost vision.

How much does cataract surgery with astigmatism correction cost?

Cataract surgery with astigmatism correction typically starts at a rate of $1500 per eye. However, the actual cost may vary based on factors like the specific type of astigmatism-correcting lens used and any additional services required. For an accurate cost estimate and to explore the benefits of cataract surgery with astigmatism correction, it is advisable to consult with our skilled ophthalmologists at New York Laser Vision.
