female with astigmatism squinting through classes and contemplating lasik surgery at Roholt VisionWhat is Astigmatism?

Roholt Vision and our team of experts have been Ohio’s leader in all types of Astigmatism correction for decades. Astigmatism is an asymmetric curve of the front lens of the eye, the cornea (sometimes the internal lens has an astigmatic curvature). Ideally, the cornea is a perfectly circular dome. But if it is oval or “spoon-shaped” a blurred image is created. Astigmatism is common and can be associated with myopia, hyperopia, and if occurring alone is called “mixed” astigmatism (half myopic and half hyperopic).

How Is Astigmatism Corrected?

At Roholt Vision Institute, the techniques of astigmatism correction have been refined over 35 years and thousands of cases. Drs. Roholt, Celmer and Wohl will use laser as in LASIK, PRK, or SMILE; micro-fine incisions, called Limbal Relaxing Incisions (LRI), or Conductive Keratoplasty (CK) as appropriate to your CustomCorrection™ to help you attain the highest visual performance.

Hear From Other Patients Who Had Astigmatism

“Couldn’t have been a nicer staff! Just went for my 3 month check up after LASIK and have 20/15 vision with no prescription in either eye after astigmatism in both eyes! Couldn’t be happier!”
– Anthony R. (Google Review)

“I decided to make the jump to LASIK after consulting with my optometrist who suggested I would be a perfect candidate, even though both eyes had astigmatism…I now have even better than 20/15 vision! My optometrist was even pretty impressed with my results. I would definitely recommend Dr. Roholt and the RVI for a LASIK procedure.”
