Laser operation Pre-req

Hi, my brother is going for an eye surgery (lasik). He is a professional bodybuilder and is using food supplements, proteins, performance enhancer all the time. He is going to get lasik done within a week or two but he is worried whether he has to stop his GH Cycle n gym and what about continuing it in future, if he has to continue it after a week or so. Will it conflict with the surgery's healing or medication. How should he proceed ? In future his bodybuilding supplements and use of performance enhancer, can it impact the vision correction after couple of months or so ? He mentioned that on a normal eye, these do not lay any impact as he is using everything in a controlled state with post cycle recovery therapy as well. But he is not sure about the surgery and thinks that it could conflict in future with the corrected eye. Prompt response will be highly appreciated..! Thanks

Hello He must be taking anabolic steroids but may have an impact.

The response to steroid use varies from person to person. So the care has to be indivisualized.
