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.

I arrived at his clinic  with some tension, but I noticed an excellent organization and the great professionalism of all the staff, from the reception to the medical and nursing staff.

Dr. Badalà welcomed me with great cordiality, he explained the stages of the operation, giving me peace of mind and security.

The surgery lasted about ten minutes and took place under local anesthesia, so I could follow all its phases, without feeling any pain. After a couple of hours I went back to the hotel, seeing well with the operated eye.

After a week I underwent cataract surgery in the other eye, and I could go back to my home town with 10/10 distance vision, totally eliminating the myopia that I had since I was a boy.

I was very surprised to have been able to see clearly immediately after surgery and did not have trouble or need any bandage.

I suggest this surgery because it easily solves cataract and myopia problems and, at the same time, I could appreciate the remarkable competence, professionalism and humanity of the doctor and his staff.
