Hi everyone, I will be starting R1 later this year and wanted to get LASIK as soon as businesses get back to normal. My uncorrected vision is pretty awful, and I had planned to go through with LASIK following medical school. It's not a vanity issue at all, but as the glasses have become larger and more cumbersome, I really can't imagine being hindered by them forvever. However, I'm concerned about the risk for corneal ectasia, blurred spots, contrast viewing abnormalities. Has anyone gone through with vision correction in rads residency or afterward or have any thoughts about it?
