Cautions for Vision Surgery


Illnesses that affect healing can make vision surgery a poor choice in some cases. If you have diabetes, HIV, lupus, or rheumatoid arthritis, talk with an ophthalmologist about your best options. Other conditions that require careful evaluation and could make you a poor candidate for surgery include:


  • Dry eye
  • Large pupils
  • Thin corneas

Surgery is not appropriate for people with keratoconus, a cornea disorder.
