Possibly: I'd suggest a consultation with a lasik surgeon to determine if you are eligible. My consultations take about 30 minutes and comprehensively screen for potential problems. A MAP called a topography and a corneal thickness measurement along with a refraction and exam will help the doctor determine if you are eligible. I've personally had lasik and haven't worn glasses in 13 years! good luck!
