The Possibility Of Recovery In Patients With Cylindrical Eyes?
Good evening, thanks for the question
Astigmatism or cylindrical eye is a condition where the light is not transmitted at the same focal point on all meridians due to abnormalities of the curve in the cornea or lens.
Patients usually present with complaints of blurred vision and slight distortion which sometimes also causes headaches. The patient squints, or tilts his head to see more clearly.
Visual impairment in astigmatism is helped by the use of cylindrical lens glasses with appropriate correction. But the use of glasses can not eliminate abnormalities in the cornea. Efforts to eliminate this condition permanently can be with LASIK surgery. In this procedure a laser is used to reshape the cornea, by removing a portion of the corneal tissue. The aim is to improve the focus of light to the retina. However LASIK action prospective patients must meet several requirements by first checking with an ophthalmologist.
Carry out further consultations with an eye specialist for your current vision correction plan.
That's all, hope you can help. Wassalam
