What to do if Astigmatism comes back after Astigmatism Laser Surgery?

Causes of Astigmatism comeback

It is a very rare occurrence when using last generation lasers to cure astigmatism. Anyway, some patients that have been cured from astigmatism in the 90’s with first generation lasers, can today experience an astigmatism comeback. In such cases, there are several therapeutic options:

  • New Laser Surgery – it usually have to be a customize and guided surgery.
  • Phakorefractive and the use of a High Tech intraocualr lens

Lasers or High Tech intraocular lenses

High Tech intraocular lens is the ideal solution to correct astigmatism in these patients. Once implanted inside the eye, visual result could be changed to the patient’s liking by simply lightening the lens with a specific ray of light coming from a computer. This makes it possible to correct myopia, astigmatism or hypermetropia to the patient’s needs.

Votazione: Eccellente
I had big problems due to cataract and high myopia (-20) with astigmatism (-2.0) in both eyes. So, a year ago, I underwent the crystalline lens replacement surgery with intraocular lens implantation.

I often did not r... Keep on reading this reviewecognize, at short distance, the faces of people I met and even contact lenses could not improve my vision (I wore them all day but they gave me a considerable discomfort to the eyes).

Now I see very well without glasses. I need them only to read closely, bust just for small letters. I see 10/10 from distance and I easily drive at night.

Sure, before surgery, I had so much anxiety, but with a slight sedation I was able to collaborate, by staring at the light the Doctor suggested me to look during surgery. I was assisted well in all phases of the operation. After about ten minutes I got back to my feet and I immediately see well from the operated eye without glasses.

I underwent surgery in the right eye at first and, two days later, in the left eye. Before the complete recover, I observed a short period of rest, I carefully followed the treatment with eye drops and I wore a protective shell at night.

For me a new life has started: I do not have to wear those heavy glasses or annoying contact lenses, which need a careful maintenance. Sure it is not easy to stay awake and collaborate during surgery, but the sureness of being operated by experienced hands helps very much.
