If you're considering LASIK surgery, it's important to understand what medications you may need to take before or after the procedure. Most patients can take their prescribed medications normally, although there are some exceptions. Over-the-counter medications, mild prescription sedatives, and nerve pain relievers are all possible medications that your eye doctor may prescribe, and you should take them as recommended. You may need to adjust or stop taking some prescription medications before undergoing LASIK surgery, so you should also check with the doctor who prescribed it.
It's essential to work with your eye surgeon to be evaluated for LASIK surgery and to understand what medications you may be taking.
