All Lasik   Before Lasik   During Lasik   After Lasik  



I intend on getting pregnant soon, can I have Lasik ?

Yes, i tell my patients that they can have lasik today and get pregnant few days later without any problem. We just want to make sure you are not pregnant when you are having lasik. You may experience visual changes during pregnancy (whether you had lasik or not). This is typically due to fluid shifts in your body. The vision usually goes back to baseline after delivery or breastfeeding
