Lasik is a safe and painless procedure with minimal rest period of 1day to maximum 1week depending on the type of Lasik you undergo. If all your other parameters corneal thickness, keratometry and retina condition are great you can go ahead with Lasik anytime

Yes, most likely, you will be fine. Depending on which type of LASIK you are opting for, the recovery period ranges from 1 day to 1 week. You will have to use eye drops for at least 1 month during the recovery period. Go ahead, if all parameters are fine in your scan & retina evaluation, you can enjoy perfect vision.
