Dear doctors,

I would like to look into getting a LASIK-type treatment for myopia and astigmatism correction, but I also happen to have a condition of adult strabismus (intermittent exotropia). Given this, I was wondering if LASIK is in/advisable before or after a strabismus correction operation, or if the 2 treatments are independent.

If they are not independent (I would not expect them to be!):

  1. Is it possible to do both treatments one after another? If so, in which order, and what would the recommended interval be like?
  2. What are the risks specific to this double treatment to take note of?

Thank you!
