Can lasik eye surgery be done a 17 year old with amblyopia in one eye that previously had eye muscle surgery and then the other eye is just bad vision?

Maybe. Lasik can be consider in patients with amblyopia to eliminate the glasses or contact lens prescription. It will not correct the amblyopia though.
Not yet. Lasik surgery is typically done only on adults when their eyes are stable. This means that early 20's is the age this can be addressed.

Why bother. If you are an adult who has true lazy eye- otherwise called amblyopia, the brain has decided to turn off most of the visual input from the weak eye. You can do Lasik if you want, but the brain will not turn it back on. You need to consult with several docs before you go down this road. Steer clear of the cheep volume based programs. Read more...

18 yrs of age. Usually lasik is performed on individuals 18 yrs or older with a stable refraction for at least 1 yr. If your vision is still changing, then you are not a good candidate for lasik and should wait until your prescription has stablized and remained so for at least 1 yr. Read more...
