    You should not be suffering from any active eye diseases such as cataract, glaucoma, retinal detachment or keratoconus. If you suffer from severe dry eyes or a past ocular herpes infection, you may also not be a good candidate. Also, be sure to tell your doctor if you or anyone in your family has ever had a cornea disorder, diabetes or autoimmune disorder. You should not be taking certain prescription drugs like oral prednisolone. These conditions may increase the risk of serious complications.Lasik cannot be done if you are pregnant.
