Q Do Floaters affect the eligibility or outcome of LASIK?

Ans. LASIK is performed on the cornea which is a superficial part of the eye. The floaters exist in the vitreous  (inner part of the eye) and hence no laser surgery on the eye can help the floaters. LASIK can be performed if you have no other indication which deems you unfit. However, one must keep in mind that the  floaters may not improve after LASIK and if they worsen, it again has no link to this procedure.
