All Lasik   Before Lasik   During Lasik   After Lasik  



I have been told my eyes have been “damaged” by contact lenses and/or that I have “vessels” on my Cornea.

There are very few instances where contact lenses damage the eye to the point where you cannot have lasik. Blood vessels in the cornea are not a problem. They usually get better after lasik as the daily trauma of the contact lens is removed.
