Can my astigmatism be corrected with cataract surgery?
Yes! There are two options for fixing astigmatism.
 A special implant (toric) - corrected concurrently with cataract surgery. 70% of people could benefit and see better post surgery with an implant that fixes corneal astigmatism.
 LASIK post cataract removal - corrected once stable after cataract surgery (~3-6months)
Not all surgeons off this correction. Talk to your Optometrist prior to surgeon referral.
