Re: [IP] lasik or RK corrective surgeries

Hello Dave.  The main concern with refractive surgery in diabetics is if
laser retinal surgery is required somewhere down the road, it may be more
difficult to do after RK surgery.  RK surgery has now become passe and is for
the most part completely replaced by LASIK.  In competent hands it is very
safe and very effective, and if the diabetes is controlled and there are
basically no known or clinical complications from the diabetes I would see no
reason why not to proceed after having gone through the informed consent
procedure and having all your questions and reservations answered to your
understanding and satisfaction.
