limbal-relaxing-incisionsAcruate Incisions (AIs) treat low to moderate degrees of astigmatism. Astigmatism may be thought of as being shaped like a football rather than being shaped like a basketball. As the name suggests, the surgeon makes small incisions in the limbus, which allows the cornea to become more rounded when it heals.

AIs are placed on the far peripheral aspect of the cornea (the limbus), resulting in a more rounded cornea. Astigmatism is reduced, and uncorrected vision is improved. Arcuate incisions can correct astigmatism and are usually made at the time of cataract, clear lens exchange, or ICL surgery to reduce or eliminate the astigmatism and thus increase the chances for better vision without eyeglasses. AIs can also be performed as an independent procedure in our in-office surgery suite.

To restore the precious gift of sight to the optimal level and reduce or eliminate your dependence on glasses we offer customizable lens and treatment options. We believe all options are good and will help guide you along the way to make the best choice for you with your visual goals as the priority.

If you have cataracts and are taking one or more eye drops every day to control your eye pressure, iStent could be right for you. iStent works to help control your eye pressure and may even reduce your dependence on eye drops. The iStent is surgically placed at the same time of cataract surgery and is covered by most major medical insurance.

Many people will have both an astigmatism and cataracts at the same time but never know it. Though both vision conditions share some symptoms, such as blurred vision, their causes are different. If you’re not sure if you have an astigmatism and/or cataracts, start by taking our free cataract & astigmatism self-assessment.
