hello lasik is very good option to get rid of glasses Doctor will perform few tests (Schirmer test, Pentacam and Fundus examination) and if all tests are normal then you can go for lasik surgery without fear. Success rate of LASIK is over 96%. we dont advise lasik to nursing mothers till 1 year after delivery

She can not undergo lasik surgery till feeding to baby is continued. So after completion of feeding and getting regular menstrual cycle she can go for surgery.

Hi.... LASIK surgery is a type of refractive eye surgery. During the procedure, an eye surgeon creates a flap in the cornea and then uses a laser to reshape the cornea and correct refractive error problems in the eye. LASIK surgery is most appropriate for people who have a moderate degree of refractive error, ... In your case it will help.... Consult ophthalmologist....
