Strabismus surgery + Lasik surgery

Hello all !

I've been thinking about doing a lasik surgery soon and it seems so far from the doctor that I am a good candidate even though I have strabismus (exotropia) which I can control in most situations. My question is, lets say down the road I would opt for a strabismus surgery, would it in anyway affect my lasik surgery or if the lasik surgery would make me not a good candidate for a future strabismus surgery ?

Thanks in advance.

The lasik will not make the strabismus surgery more difficult.
