Can you correct Astigmatism?

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