Here is My Question:
I’ve had optic neuritis related to my MS since 1987, stable MS. Am I a candidate for LASIK surgery?
If you have had optic neuritis due to MS you can still get LASIK surgery.
You will need to see a corneal specialist who does LASIK surgery to see if it is an appropriate procedure for you to have.
