You may not get a complete correction because of the high cylinder power. Initial screening by topography & pachymetry will decide the possible outcome. You can get the best outcome, if you are suitable, by opting for toric lens implant inside your eye, rather than LASIK.

Hello, During the procedure, an eye surgeon creates a flap in the cornea, and then uses a laser to reshape the cornea and correct focusing problems in the eye. It's important for refractive errors to be stable for at least 12 months before undergoing LASIK or other refractive surgery.So your eye power should be stable , with this power you can undergo surgery.
