Astigmatism is not really a separate problem from myopia (nearsightedness). Astigmatism means there is a range of myopia in a person's eye. The degree of myopia may be, for example, -3 diopters vertically but -4 horizontally: there is not a single nearsighted focal point. LASIK always aims to optimize the focal point problem whether there is just one or if there is a range of myopia as in the above example. There is no extra charge for doing this.
