Lasik: Astigmatism is easy, that means the eye is shaped like a football and not a basketball.. Nystagmus, if is mild can be tracked by the eye tracker on the laser. For more severe nystagmus, I have stabilized the eye with a forcep and tracked the eye without the tracker. The results were good. Nystagmus is a intermittent or continuous swinging of the eyes.
