In brief: Yes.

The advancement in corneal surgery with the use of laser assistance has become more precise as time moves on.
Measurements are taken of your corneal curvature and thickness prior to laser assisted surgery that is directed to correcting both spherical (myopic or hyperopic) and astigmatic refractive errors that one may have. The most common laser assisted corneal surgery is lasik.

In brief: Probably

As long as your astigmatism is regular, laser surgery usually can correct it.
If it is irregular or a very high amount of astigmatism, then you may have to consider a hard contact lens or corneal surgery. You should see a cornea doctor for an evaluation.
