In brief: Lasik maybe possible

the scar may not be a problem and Lasik may still be possible but only your Lasik doctor can tell you.
.But the good news is that PRK is the safe option to get safe lasik results even with a scar..Keep us posted...Dr.Sibley..

In brief: LASIK ; cornea scar

If you have a cornea scar, you may or may not be eligible for lasik depending on the severity of the scar, as well as the location of the scar. If the scar is in the visual axis, then it may be affecting your vision and you can consider surface laser (prk) to remove the scar and at the same time, improve your vision.
If the scar is peripheral, you may be eligible for lasik. Please see your doc.
