Can Sufferers Of Heart Disease Do Lasik Eye?
Hello doctor. Does having heart disease not have lasik eye? The disease never relapsed. thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, you should first explain what heart disease you have and are there certain medications that you regularly take for your illness?
In general, to be able to do LASIK, there are several requirements that must be met, including:
your eyes must be in good health
your corneas must be sufficient thickness
pupils should not be too wide
refractive disorders that are owned should not be too high
you must be of sufficient age (over 21 years)
Your refractive disorders must be quite stable
your health is good, there shouldn't be certain diseases that can interfere with wound healing like uncontrolled diabetes, uncontrolled autoimmune diseases, uncontrolled HIV, consumption of certain drugs that interfere with the body's immune system, etc.
You should consult with an eye doctor first so that you can further examine your overall health condition. As long as your health condition is good enough, your illness or the drugs you take do not risk to disrupt the wound healing process, and you also fulfill other LASIK requirements, then you will still be allowed to do this procedure.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
