Can we treat corneal astigmatism? Well. WE can't, but ...

Another video feature today, for you.

This one from a question in the Facebook group:

The answer to this I thought at first, should be obvious:

If Aboud spent the requisite amount of time doing his own research, he might have figured out that we don’t advocate for a fix for an irregularly shaped cornea.  Because we don’t know about fixing anything that’s broken or mal-funtioning or otherwise not ‘healthy’ and normal.

But then Aboud clearly wrote a well considered question and did some research.  Also people ask about this sometimes, so we might as well address it.

Don’t want to watch the video? 

Short version, I can’t tell you how to fix an irregularly shaped cornea.  Unless … maybe your visual cortex has built-in features to compensate for such irregularities?

Who knows.  Go make some 20/20 gains!
