Kansas City Laser Eye Surgery Practice Offers Three Astigmatism Correction Options

Dr. Daniel Durrie and His Eye Care Team at Durrie Vision Offer Three Effective Options for Patients Whose Vision Is Blurred by Astigmatism

KANSAS CITY, KS -- (Marketwired) -- 06/25/14 -- Durrie Vision is a Kansas City LASIK and laser eye surgery practice headed by renowned refractive surgeon Daniel Durrie, MD. As defined in a recent post on the practice website, "Astigmatism is a refractive error of the eye caused by an imperfection in the curvature of the cornea." While the shape of a normal cornea is spherical like a basketball, the blog entry compares the shape of an astigmatic cornea to that of a football. As a result, light entering the eye is refracted to two focal points rather than one, which causes blurred vision at all distances.

At Durrie Vision, Dr. Durrie and his team of eye doctors offer the following three options to correct astigmatism:

1. Eyeglasses
2. Toric Contact Lenses
3. Refractive Surgery

According to Dr. Durrie, glasses have long been the most common treatment for blurred vision caused by astigmatism. Though glasses can be an excellent solution, the refractive surgeon notes that "they often pose a slight issue with peripheral vision as one must look directly through the distortion point of the lenses to see clearly."

Toric contact lenses, which are a special type of soft contacts, are also a popular option for correcting astigmatism; however, because the astigmatic cornea has an oblong shape, Dr. Durrie says patients may notice their contact lenses shifting in and out of place as they blink. Additionally, he notes that toric contact lenses are often a bit more expensive than regular contact lenses as a result of their unique shape and design.

For patients who do not wish to wear eyeglasses or contact lenses to correct their astigmatism, Dr. Durrie says refractive laser surgery may be an excellent option. During the refractive laser procedure, the cornea is reshaped into a normal, round curvature with the utmost precision. Additionally, all corrections made to the cornea during the operation are permanent, ultimately helping to ensure patients maintain quality vision for a lifetime.
