Q I am on medication for TSH (Thyroid) imbalance. So am I eligible for the treatment?

Ans. Our refractive consultant will be doing specific tests for LASIK  to check the effect of the thyroid problem and its medications on the eyes such as dryness, Glaucoma, Proptosis, changing numbers etc. In the absence of which you may undergo the procedure, if found suitable for the same.

We can also perform EpiLASIK in certain situations like Dry eyes. Also, you would know if your numbers have changed drastically over the years that you were diagnosed with this condition, hence please bring along your records. The eligibility depends on the tests that are done, just a history of hypo or hyper thyroidism does not make you unfit.
