Here is My Question:
Can MS patients on Copaxone have laser eye surgery.
Yes, none of the DMTs would interfere with lasik eye surgery. We answered this question for you a while back, but in case you missed it, here is a blog with more information and while it talks about Tysabri and lasik surgery it also states that "The one thing that would not prevent you from having lasik surgery is treatment with Tysabri or any of the other disease modifying therapies for MS. The exceptions to this rule would recent treatment with chemotherapy (cyclophosphamide and mitoxantrone) and steroids (solumedrol, methylprednisolone, prednisone); I would recommend being off chemotherapy and steroids for at least 6 months before considering lasik surgery."
