Q: I am pregnant, or I am breastfeeding, can I have LASIK? Should I come for an eval, right now, at all?
A: Dr. Ming Wang, Harvard & MIT (MD); PhD (laser physics), always performs a thorough baseline eye exam, for all pregnant or breastfeeding women. And then, the patients then return later (when they are no longer pregnant or breastfeeding), so we could compare the prescription readings, and establish stability of prescription, and if stable, then we can consider the procedures.
Hence, even during your pregnancy or breastfeeding, a baseline exam now is important, for later comparison purpose.
