Yes, generally: So long as you're a good candidate (which will be determined from your per-surgical testing & exam) you will likely have excellent results including correction of most cases of astigmatism.

NO: Astimatism is a type of refractive error like myopia (nearsightedness) or hyperopia (farsightedness).

It takes 20 times longer for my eyes to accomadote from bright to dim. Is my astigmatism that bad?
No association: Astigmatism has no relationship to dark adaptation. Dark adaptation gets worse with age. If yours is much worse than similarly aged friends, then you should see an ophthalmologist to have it investigated. It could be a sign of a rare retina disease.

Astigmatism: Astigmatism is one type of refractive error. Myopia (or nearsightedness), hyperopa (or farsightedness), and astigmatism all can cause refractive error. Refractive error is what causes a patient to require glasses or contact lenses to see better. Astigmatism is typically when the cornea is shaped more like a football than a basketball. Glasses, contact, and LASIK can fix this problem. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Corneal curvature: Astigmatism just means that your cornea is not perfectly spherically shaped and instead has different curvatures in different directions (kind of like a football in the extreme example). Everyone has some degree of astigmatism although not everyone has enough to notice it. I doubt you "need" any surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Usually not: Astigmatism is a physical curvature aspect of the cornea and lens of the eye which in effect makes the eye oval. The term astigmatism is from physics and is not usually a bad thing. The correction is a reverse oval in the eyeglasses or contacts. Most astigmatism is small and easily corrected. Sometimes it is large or irregular and that make perfect vision difficult. See your ophthalmologist. ...Read more
