hi i was wondering if a person has possible ms can they still get lasik to correct vision? I think i may have ms but not definite yet, a year ago i wanted to get lasik but backed out for no reason but during questioning they asked if i had any autoimune disease, i have been having problems for many years with things and have always felt i had ms, i was wondering if they do not know for sure what someone has how can they still offer the surgery? are there more risks? thanks so much.when they gave me their eye test which was extessive they did not say they noticed anything wrong with my eyes but i have always had blurry vision and other minor eye problems such as a gray line in my visual field that did go away, thats another reason why i felt i had ms but i have been to many good eye dr and no one evre suggested ON to me or even said they saw anything wrong with my eyes, they were all made aware of any visual problem that i had.
what if it ends up being definite ms? i am having a spinal tomorow and I read that MS is considered an autoimune deisease,they also said they will not do it on people who have rheumatoid arthritis, thank you so much for your response, it is very help full to hear your opinions.
