Since the spherical power is stable since 1 year and very minimal cylinder power has appeared there should not be much problem with going ahead for lasik...still eligibility for lasik will only be decided post proper lasik related eye examination
Next Steps
Lasik work up including final refractive error assessment corneal topography to rule out keratoconus dry eye work up

If your refraction is stable you may undergo surgery if all your other tests are within normal limits. A small fluctuation in refraction is possible between two visits. Make sure you completely sure of your refractive error before undergoing surgery.
