LASIK Surgery with Nystagmus

Question: I have mild nystagmus and would like to have LASIK surgery. About two years ago, I went to a LASIK eye surgeon to see if I was a candidate for LASIK and was told that it was possible. I know this won't get rid of the eye movement, but I just don't want to wear glasses if that is possible. Can I have LASIK and what is the best type of surgery to have?
Answer: In many instances, LASIK with nystagmus is possible. In order to determine whether you are still a good LASIK candidate, or if perhaps you might be better off with some other type of Laser Eye Surgery for vision correction such as PRK, it is necessary for you to find the best LASIK Surgeon in your area and schedule a consultation. From the examination and measurements it will be possible to tell you if you should proceed and what you can expect in terms of success and to also identify what types of procedures would be most appropriate for you.
