    Yes, you can take lasik eye surgery even if you have astigmatism. In fact, lasik eye surgery is a type of refractive surgery apply to eyes. The surgery can correct some refractive errors such as myopia, hyperopia as well as astigmatism etc. However, you are suggested to consult your doctor if the surgery available for you. In common, people who under 18 years old and with unstable eyesight can't take the lasik eye surgery. Besides, you can't take the surgery if you have very thin corneal or some corneal diseases etc. So, you'd better check your eyes first if you plan for an lasik eye surgery.

    Yes,u can.But I am afraid that I have to tell u that ur lasik eye surgery will not cure ur astigmatism.First of all,u need to know that what lasik eye surgery is used for.It is mainly used for curing nearsightedness or farsightedness.And the success rate is very high.However,I don't think it can work to astigmatism since this is a kind of real eye disease.U had better pay attention to this.
