Here is My Question:
I have MS and I'm tired of getting my eyes examined every year because my eye sight changes every time they change my MS medicine. Can I qualify for lasik surgery for my eyes?
You would need to see an ophthalmologist who specializes in performing LASIK surgery to see if you would qualify. Having multiple sclerosis would not exclude you from having LASIK surgery.
