Other eye conditions may not disqualify you from having LASIK surgery, but they should be reviewed by your eye doctor. Some conditions such as blepharitis, dilated pupils, thin corneas, previous refractive surgery, and dry eyes may disqualify you from LASIK surgery. To undergo LASIK surgery, your vision must remain unchanged for at least one year. This means that if you have unstable vision, at least for now, LASIK surgery isn't right for you.
The FDA requires that anyone who undergoes LASIK be 18 years of age or older to be eligible. This is due to the fact that your vision keeps changing when you are young.

In some cases, the factors that prevent application are temporary, such as pregnancy and breastfeeding, uncontrolled eye surface disease (dry eye, blepharitis), or an unstable prescription for eyeglasses.
In other cases, factors are persistent, such as an eyeglass prescription that is too small or too large, corneas that are too thin or irregular (as in the case of keratoconus), or unrealistic expectations. A bad application can lead to undesirable and irreversibly poor results.
