I was in your shoes 10 months ago. I had terrible astigmatism. I went in for the free evaluation that a surgeon was offering. He was confident that he could help me.
Due to my having thin corneas, he performed Epi-Lasik, instead of Lasik (only difference that you need to worry about with those is Epi-Lasik has a longer & slightly more painful recovery time and I was not able to see CLEARLY for around 3 months - I was NOT aware of THAT going in).
Point of the story is though, that I CAN see very clearly now, I think my vision is 20/15. It's so wonderful not to depend on contacts when I had been wearing them for more than half of my life!
I hope you can find a surgeon as skilled as the one I found!
Good luck to you.
