    In theory, you can have it. But the surgeon may be unwilling to give you a lasik surgery because there will be a higher risk to have a lasik surgery after cateract surgery. What's more, when you get old, you still need reading glasses to correct your vision because it can't be corrected with surgery.

    You can do it but there may be a higher risk to get lasik surgery. If you insist to have the surgery, you should choose an experience surgeon and know all the risk of it. In my opinion, I would not suggest you to get lasik surgery. Glasses are not that bad.
