What Are The Two Types of Contraindications With LASIK?

Contraindications and LASIK

An absolute contraindication in LASIK means that you have a medical condition, or health related problems, that prohibits you from having LASIK eye surgery. Your surgeon should and will not perform eye surgery on you if you have an absolute contraindication for having LASIK.

The other type of contraindication is a relative one. A relative contraindication means your surgeon will need to take special measures and precautions during your surgery and your treatment. It also means your results may end up less predictable than those who receive LASIK without a relative contraindication.
