What is Astigmatism?

Roholt Vision has 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.
