In brief: See an MD eye doctor

An ophthalmologist is a physician trained to examine and treat the eyes.
He or she would be able to examine you to make that determination.

In brief: Yes

Most myopes with a power less than about -10 can be corrected by lasik.
A few might be disqualified for reasons that can be discussed with you by your lasik surgeon who you will have to consult with anyway prior to the surgery.
