Q My brother and I have taken iso tretinoin to treat acne. He took the medication last year and I completed the treatment this February. We are otherwise fit and health and have no other health problems other than dry eyes. Will this impact the surgery at all?

Ans.  Sometimes, taking hormonal medication for acne for long term (not Isoretinoin) can cause a change in cornea, causing shift in powers.
