In brief: Yes
It is possible and many pilots have had laser vision correction.
There are many different vision requirements for aviation from civilian, commercial and military. You have to carefully check the requirements that meet your goals.

In brief: Possibly
Your ability to become a pilot depends on the requirement set for the position.
Most military pilots and commercial airlines do not allow prior lasik. Other opportunities may not have this requirement.
