irregular astigmatism

Postby bada5150 » Sat Dec 08, 2007 3:52 am

Hi, Glenn
Today, I found out that my right eye have irregular astigmatism. I was told that my astigmatism of .75 on my right eye was regular astigmatism and glasses can fix the problem from my first lasik place.

I came to different state to get second opinion and found out that my right eye have irregular astigmatism. This is what new doctor told me. The fact is that I see both eye 20/20. Left eye have some degree of astigmatism but it still sees sharp. My right eye have just little higher astigmatism but it sees blurry.

Can irregular astigmatism (little degree) cause everything blurry?
Two doctors already told me that -.75 astigmatism should not bother me too much and they didn't understand why I am experiencing extreme blurry yet I only got .75 astigmatism.

New doctor told me that eye glasses or soft contact lens won't fix my eye.
I tried soft contact and made it worse. He made me try Gas permisible hard lens. which gave me little more sharpness.

He said that PRK can fix this problem but how? How could PRK can fix my irregular astigmatism without over correcting?

Please you opinion will help me great.

Thank you

Bada:
You went to see another doc in another state for a second opinion?
I have read about a Dr. L in the Minnesota area that has a good reputation and is in the industry publications.
If you can make it to Kansas a Dr. D has an excellent reputation in the industry and is part of this site I believe.
They should be able to pinpoint it for you and get you the best advice.
Let us know

Google Minnesota Eye Consultants
I've read about him here before http://www.osnsupersite.com/
Seeing a corneal specialist is probably a good idea also

Would he see me? Many doc won't even see me since I already got lasik done.

Why wouldn't they, especially if they are a top refractive surgeon or corneal specialist?
You may want to email Glenn and ask him for his thoughts
