No: Lasik is not proven to help with light sensitivity, only to decrease or eliminate the need for glasses.
Dr. Jay Bradley

Light sensitivity : Having lasik will not resolve the light sensitivity. Sone people are more sensitive to light than other but it could be due to dry eye, blepharitis, or some other eye problem. These issues should be treated prior to lasik.
