Could you please explain what is meant by the term “mixed astigmatism,” and if this condition can be treated with LASIK?

Mixed astigmatism is one in which the unequal curvature of the cornea (and sometimes also the lens inside the eye) causes one meridian of the eye to be farsighted and a second meridian (perpendicular to the first) to be nearsighted. It can be corrected through refractive surgery or lasik.
