• Can I have LASIK with high blood pressure and chronic iron deficiency?


    Question:

    I am 54 years old, with high blood pressure and chronic iron deficiency. I am nearsighted. Can I qualify for LASIK and what are the chances that I will eventually need reading glasses?


    Answer:

    These medical conditions will have no effect on the procedure if you are found to be a good candidate (healthy cornea and retina and no cataract changes). You likely will need reading glasses immediately after the procedure as most choose to have distance vision corrected, not near vision.
