Diabetes and LASIK
July 20, 2011

Can you have Lasik surgery with Type 1 Diabetes?
Having Diabetes is not considered a contraindication to having the Lasik procedure by the FDA ; but it is listed under the category of warning. This means the status of your diabetes both currently and in the past may have a bearing on the quality of your candidacy. Well controlled diabetics with normal visual function, normal retinal blood vessels, stable glasses/contact powers and normal general healing may be excellent Lasik candidates. Having uncontrolled blood sugars, fluctuation in vision, abnormal blood vessels and poor healing are all reasons why a patient may not be a candidate for Lasik. This, however, does not necessarily preclude you from having another form of laser vision correction (PRK) or perhaps an implantable lens procedure, all for which are available at Hale Vision.
Prior to performing any LASIK procedure, those qualified individual will need to go through an extremely thorough extra screening to ensure that they can have succesful refractive surgery. A detailed retinal exam, close examination with a slit lamp, tear film and epithelial tests can lowered the high complication rate in individuals with diabetes who undergo LASIK.
