You have cylindrical error in your eyes. It will be of great use and prognostic significance, if your corneal profile , and thickness along with the back surface of your cornea is evaluated, by Pentacam which is only available at good refractive surgery centres. In cases with high cylindrical power shape of should be studied in detail and then approach to laser decided.
Take care
