Can laser eye surgery correct astigmatism?
Laser eye surgery is an effective method for permanently correcting astigmatism. LASIK eye surgery reshapes the cornea of the eye so that light can focus on the retina properly. Many patients with mild to moderate astigmatism are able to achieve 20/20 vision with LASIK surgery. Patients with severe astigmatism are able to drastically improve their vision and may be able to totally correct their vision with multiple laser surgeries.
