Astigmatism: And other refractive errors (like nearsightedness and farsightedness) can be corrected with lasik or other types of refractive surgery. This will take care of any glasses need you have for distance vision but you will still need to wear reading glasses as you get older. This is due to presbyopia, or age-related reading difficulty.
