Thank you for posting your query.

There is no medicine to reduce the power. However, lasik surgery can help you reduce the cylindrical power (astigmatism) as well.

Several of my patients have benefitted from this. Also, it is a safe procedure.

I hope it helps. Please get back if you have any more queries.

Wishing you good health,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM
