Can laser eye surgery treat astigmatism? Yes, we correct any astigmatism in your prescription with a high degree of accuracy, even up to 6 dioptres.
It’s a common misconception that refractive surgery cannot correct astigmatism, but fortunately it isn’t true. Excimer lasers have been able to correct these refractive errors for around 20 years. It was in the early days of laser treatment that astigmatism wasn’t corrected, and this perception has persisted over the past 2 decades.
Focus has a 100% success rate for 20/20 vision for all common short-sighted prescriptions, including up to 2 dioptres of astigmatism, representing more than 90% of all astigmatic prescriptions.
