LASIK alters the corneal surface on the outside of the eye. Cataracts occur on this inside and are mostly age related. The presence or absence of LASIK has no influence on this so you could still get cataracts as you put on years.

You can have cataract surgery after LASIK. Outcomes with new technologies we have are getting better and better each year. See http://eyedoc2020.blogspot.com for more information.
