In brief: See below

Generally speaking it does not compromise the ability to scuba dive.
If you are over the age of 45 and get full lasik correction, you may have difficulty with near vision and reading your gauges. However, most patients ask about pressure differences and although there may be rare case reports of problems, in general lasik patients have no problems with future scuba diving.

In brief: No

Once the eyes are fully healed from surgery, you will be able to resume all normal activities.
