Can you correct Astigmatism?

Yes, all lasers today are able to correct astigmatism. When the lasers were first approved in the 1990s, astigmatism could not be corrected. This has changed a few years later and now most people with astigmatism can have their eyes corrected. If the astigmatism is too high or asymmetric, you may not be a good candidate. This is typically checked at the time of your preoperative evaluation.
