I don't know my specific measurement of astigmatism, but I remember my doctor telling me it's a small measurement. I will call tomorrow to get specifics.

ICL with minor astigmatism
Yes you can have the ICL procedure done if you have minor astigmatism. Most physicians use techniques that correct a small amount of astigmatism during the treatment. Additionally, sometimes patients will see better if they have LASIK or PRK after the procedure to fine-tune the results. This is a little more common if the astigmatism is strong.
