Hi, it’s Matt Russell from VSON Laser Vision Specialists. If you’re planning on getting laser eye surgery and have a cold, you may be wondering, can I get LASIK if I have a cough?”
Yes. As long as you’re otherwise well and haven’t tested positive for Coronavirus, having a cough won’t affect your LASIK procedure.
Even if you were to cough, sneeze or move during the procedure, the laser has an advanced tracking device that follows your small eye movements and will stop as soon as it detects movement. Once you are settled again, the laser will begin exactly where it stopped and continue the procedure. Be assured, you cannot do anything wrong during your surgery.
To learn more about LASIK, and know which treatment is best for you to free yourself from the hassle of glasses and contact lenses, then please book online for a free laser vision assessment on our website today.
