Laser surgery for high astigmatism
after performing laser eye surgery for 24 years I would prefer to perform what I call all-laser LASIK. Also called bladeless or no-blade LASIK. Why?
This type of surgery is the most precise in treating such high degrees of astigmatism. In fact we treat this degree quite routinely. The no-blade technique does allow for a touch up in case all the astigmatism is not fully corrected with one treatment.
This answer depends on the patient being a good candidate.
