It depends: Most cases of astigmatism can be corrected with either glasses, contacts, or laser vision correction surgery. This is true if your cornea is otherwise healthy and your astigmatism is what is called "regular" astigmatism. If your astigmatism is caused by some other disease/condition of your cornea and is "irregular", it may not be fully correctable. Ask your eye doctor for more information.
