Dr. Richard Witlin answered:

Is there any of way to correct astigmatism besides refractive surgery?

Not exactly

Refractive_surgery
If you mean to permanently get rid of your astigmatism, the only way is through surgery. If you mean to correct your astigmatism so that you can see clearly, glasses or toric contact lenses will do this. But they do not eliminate the astigmatism, just optically correct for it.

Dr. Richard Wieder answered:

What do I need to do in order to get refractive surgery to correct astigmatism in eye ?

Refractive surgery

Astigmatism
Patients who are interested in refractive surgery for nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism should be screen by a refractive surgeon to determine if they are good candidates. If so, then their refractive errors can routinely be managed by LASIK or PRK.
