We do not provide Lasik or similar surgery. We evaluate and certify surgeons who provide refractive surgery. We do not have pricing information.

3.75 diopters of cylinder (astigmatism) correction is a large amount. It is probable that you will need more than one surgery to fully correct the refractive error. You will want to discuss this with your surgeon. It is not likely that the astigmatism will return after surgery.

With Lasik, you will have rapid visual recovery but vision may fluctuate for several days or weeks.

All surgery has risks, however Lasik is considered safe and effective by American medical standards.
