All Lasik   Before Lasik   During Lasik   After Lasik  



What if I have LASIK and my prescription was not stable ?

As long as your eye has been determined healthy, this will not result in damage to your eye. The only risk you incur is a higher chance of a laser touch-up (repeat surgery). In general, the risk of a touch-up is 3%. Having lasik despite an unstable prescription will just increase that percentage.
