I've worn contacts for over 30 years now but have recently considered getting Lasik. I have heavy astigmatism and have been wearing toric lenses, which work most of the time but still tend to drift making my vision poor at any distance. I signed up for a Lasik seminar, attended and was interested in continuing. I stopped wearing my contacts over two weeks before my preop exam but apparently my eyes still haven't settled to a consistent shape because they couldn't get consistent results when measuring them. I have another exam scheduled in two weeks but I'm beginning to wonder if it's even worth it. Should I just accept defeat or go back and try again?
Can I get contacts if I have presbyopia (needing progressives) AND astigmatism? [more inside]
I'd like to buy contact lenses online, but the optometrist threw in a new twist. Astigmatism. [more inside]
I'm looking to hear from people who have both astigmatism and myopia and have successfully transitioned to contact lenses. Also, if your eye doc is in Manhattan, can I have his/her number? [more inside]
My gf has an eye exam in a few days and is looking for extended wear contacts for a slight astigmatism. Does anyone have any reccomendations?
