Astigmatism Doesn’t Prevent LASIK Surgery

LASIK surgery patient story

At UAMS our goal is to provide the best care for every patient every day. Our patients say it best, and their stories are really the story of UAMS. All the formal awards and accolades just can’t tell the UAMS story better than the words of our patients.

Dana Carthron recommends LASIK surgery at UAMS: “I had been wearing glasses since I was 4. I could never wear contact lenses and was told my astigmatism prevented me from having LASIK surgery. Not so. After a thorough exam at Jones Eye, I was told I was a candidate for LASIK after all. I had the surgery, and I had 20/20 vision the very next day.”
