LASIK Surgery and Having Children/Nursing Baby
A question asked many times by our female clients is if they should delay having LASIK laser surgery until after they finish having children. The concern is that hormonal changes during pregnancy may change a mommy-to-be’s glasses or contact lens prescription. The same can apply to nursing moms as well.
Our surgeon at Eyes of Texas Laser Center, Dr. L. Shawn Wong, M.D. advises:
If you are between pregnancies or not nursing heavily (i.e., your menstrual cycle has returned), the likelihood of being able to have LASIK is actually quite high. Of course, a Free Screening with Dr. Wong is necessary to fully determine your candidacy and see what your likely outcome will be. If you would like further information about how you could achieve visual freedom, call or email us to schedule your screening.
