At Omni Eye Specialists, we meet several patients with an astigmatism who think that they aren’t eligible for vision correction procedures. In fact, if there’s a single question we receive most frequently at our offices, it’s this: “Can I still experience life-changing benefits of corrective eye surgery if I have an astigmatism”?

The answer? Yes.

An astigmatism is a condition in which the curvature of your cornea becomes misshapen, or “deflated”. While this condition should be treated, it does not disqualify you as a candidate for the various procedures offered at Omni Eye Specialists.
