One of the most common visual disorders is astigmatism, which happens when your cornea is shaped more like a football than a baseball.
Equally as common? Most people suffering from this disorder, which causes blurry or double vision, believe they aren't candidates for LASIK vision correction.
Fortunately, this couldn't be further from the truth. At Simon Vision Institute--the Bay Area's leading LASIK center and the only place to have LASIK Custom Vision--Board Certified Ophthalmologist Dr. George Simon is able to treat known astigmatism with the newest technology and his proprietary namogram, together known as AstigmaClear. By using this nomogram in conjunction with the world's two most advanced, blade-free LASIK lasers, Dr. Simon reshapes the curvature of the cornea, effectively treating astigmatism prescriptions as high as 8 or 9 cylinders.
With over 25 years of experience, Dr. Simon has personally performed over 75,000 LASIK procedures, making him the Bay Area’s most experienced LASIK surgeon. He is also nationally recognized as one of the most skilled surgeons in this field.
If you suffer from astigmatism and have been told you're not eligible for LASIK, visit one of LASIK Custom Vision's Concord or Foster City locations for a second opinion. Or, start by taking a self-evaluation to see if LASIK surgery is right for you by visiting LASIKcustomvision.com
