In brief: Thin corneas ; LASIK

Thin corneas are not by themselves a reason to not be a candidate for lasik.
Many thin cornea patients can have lasik - as long as their corneal topography is normal and their level of myopia and/or astigmatism is relatively low. Your doctor will perform tests to see whether lasik is an appropriate procedure based on many factors. Best of luck!
