There are many treatment which can correct both nearsightedness and some astigmatism.
The degree to which either can be corrected depends on a variety of measurements such as corneal curvature, axial length, corneal thickness and more. Ultimately, the best option depends on your needs and should be decided with your refractive surgeon.
