LASIK can fix astigmatism better than glasses or contacts ever could. If only a small amount of astigmatism is present, laser correction may not be necessary. However, if astigmatism is impairing vision, LASIK is a viable  option.

During the LASIK procedure, a surgeon uses a laser to reshape the cornea, making it more spherical and correcting the way that it will bend and focus light.

For some astigmatic patients, LASIK offers more benefits than glasses or contacts. LASIK improves eyesight across the entire visual field, versus just the portion of the visual field that’s covered by prescription eyewear.

It is a general misconception that LASIK can not correct astigmatism. Astigmatism is when the shape of eyeball is not perfectly round and people call it its like the football shape. Yeah, LASIK can correcet astigmatism. Actually, LASIK is one of the best ways to correct astigmatism.It depends on the machine that you are using. The machine Visx can correct up to 5 diopters of astigmatism.
