Laser eye surgery for astigmatism
What is astigmatism?
A person who has astigmatism will find that objects close by or far away will appear slightly out of focus. This means points frequently appear as bars or rods, hence the German word for the condition “Stabsichtigkeit”, which comes from the word for rod, “Stab”. If you also suffer from this condition, then let us reassure you that astigmatism can also be treated with lasers.
We treat patients with astigmatism in our lasik germany® centres in Hamburg, Berlin, Hanover, Frankfurt, Oberhausen, Stuttgart and Munich. Don’t hesitate to come and see us if you are interested in undergoing treatment for astigmatism in order to do without glasses in future. We are very experienced in the treatment of astigmatism and use a state-of-the-art laser that is considered one of the best devices in the world.
Treating astigmatism using a laser
LASIK is a method used in modern eye surgery, which makes use of eye lasers instead of a scalpel. The LASIK laser technology is one of the most progressive methods in refractive surgery. Treatment of astigmatism is carried out with a Bausch & Lomb Excimer Teneo 317 laser with integrated wavefront technology. This laser is among the leading laser devices, used for more LASIK procedures worldwide than any other system.
In our centres LASIK is used to treat astigmatism of up to +4 dpt – with great success. If you too are interested in laser treatment for your astigmatism, the experienced team behind renowned LASIK expert Dr Jörg Fischer will be happy to help you.
