Is it safe for a nursing baby and reasonable for the mother to get lasik eye surgery if she has had no change in her eye prescription from pregnancy?

In brief: Wait 6-8 weeks after

It is generally recommended to wait 6-8 weeks after completion of delivery and breastfeeding and for your prescription to be stable.

In brief: Should not be a pbm

The procedure and eyedrops, etc.
Involved in the lasik procedure should not affect the breast milk production or baby in any way. Whether it is reasonable to get the procedure is a question for your pocket book & your specific situation.Your doc can provide the pros & cons & you come up with a decision based on the information you have.
