In brief: Contraindications
Patients whose refraction is not stable, whose corneas are too thin or are irregular on topography, pregnant patients, patients with uncontrolled diabetes or glaucoma and patients on certain prescription medications such as amiodarone are not good candidates.
Also, patients with other eye conditions such as cataract or macular degeneration should not have this surgery. Discuss with your eye md.
