HIV + and Laser Eye surgery
Sep 27, 2006
Laser Eye Surgery
I have been HIV-pos for about 8 years and have had no significant problems. My t Cell count is 900+ and my viral load is undetectable. I want to get laser surgery to correct near-sightedness. Has any new information come out on laser surgery and the affects on HIV+ people. Thanks, RSM, Colorado Springs, CO
Response from Dr. Henry
I have had numerous patients undergo a variety of eye procedures including Lasik surgery. Outcomes have been similar to the general population. KH
