In brief: Most certainly

Astigmatism is a condition where the cornea is off-round in one or more planes.
It is treated very successfully with corrective lenses that correct for the visual distortions caused by the mal-shapen cornea. Astigmatism can also sometimes be treated surgically with laser surgery and other techniques. See your local eye care professional to see what options might be best for you.
