LASIK Question of the Day: Can I Have LASIK if I Am Pregnant?

LASIK should not be performed if you are pregnant. LASIK requires a stable prescription and a stable corneal thickness. During pregnancy and even while nursing, hormone changes can cause fluctuations in tears, corneal thickness and your prescription. Thus, if you are thinking of getting pregnant, are pregnant or have had a baby within 6 months of your desired LASIK surgery date-you should delay your LASIK. Consider LASIK only when your eyes, prescription and tears are stable.
