Hi all, I thought I'd throw out a topic: I'm thinking about having LASIK done to correct nearsightedness but I'm worried about complications such as not being able to see everything I should be able to see under a microscope as a pathologist. Does anyone know of pathologists who have gotten LASIK vision correction? What was the outcome? Any long-term problems reading slides afterwards? Any malpractice insurance implications? I would think that pathologist's eyes would be sensitive to even slight complications, but I know that some opthamologists, surgeons, pilots, etc. who also need high acuity vision have had LASIK without complications. Of course, I am going to talk to an opthalmologist about this - I'm not asking for medical advice, but just stories, impressions, opinions. If I do decide to go through with it, I will probably do it before I start residency so that if there is some catastrophic complication that prevents me from looking through a microscope at least I will have time to change my career!
