See clearly again…eliminate your astigmatism
Give yourself the gift of clear vision
Astigmatism: the effect of an off-round cornea or lens
In order to focus light precisely, the normal lens and cornea have perfectly round surfaces. In astigmatism, the surface is distorted. Usually, it is longer in one direction than the other—like the surface of a football. Astigmatism can be slight or severe, and may be combined with other conditions like farsightedness or nearsightedness.
Dr. Siepser can eliminate astigmatism for most patients
By reshaping the cornea, Dr Siepser helps people to enjoy clear vision up close and in the distance. If you have astigmatism as well nearsightedness or farsighteness, both conditions may be fixed in the same brief procedure.
Most patients are candidates for LASIK, but even those who are not can often be helped with one of Dr. Siepser’s many other procedures.
