We have resumed eye exams and elective eye surgery. Click for more information.

Mr. Fouche had an intraocular lens exchange in June 2011 to treat his astigmatism. He chose the Toric lens to treat his astigmatism at the time of surgery. Astigmatism is defined as “without a point of focus” and occurs when the cornea is shaped like an oval football. The cornea without astigmatism is round like a baseball in shape. The oval shape causes light rays to land on two points in the back of the eye, rather than one, blurring both near and distance vision. Some people have more astigmatism than others, and thus more difficulty with blur than others.
