• When is it OK to get pregnant after LASIK?


    Question:

    I had LASIK surgery a month ago. How soon after LASIK is it safe for me to become pregnant? One doctor told me it is safe to get pregnant right after the surgery and other doctor recommended waiting 3 to 6 months.


    Answer:

    You can get pregnant at any time. The concern is that some patients develop dry eye during their pregnancy but if you have healed well at one month, you should be fine going forward.
