In a normal, healthy eye, the cornea is round. In an astigmatic eye, it is football shaped, which prevents the eye from focusing light in just one place on the cornea; instead, light rays focus at more than one point, blurring near, middle, and distant vision.
LASIK can streamline the surface of the cornea, correcting irregular curvature and improving the eye’s focusing ability. It can ultimately improve near, middle, and distant vision.
