Some people with common vision problems also suffer from abnormally large pupils. While it may not be the enlarged pupils causing the vision problem, having abnormally large pupils may exclude you from getting LASIK surgery - depending on the surgeon and his or her preference regarding pre-existing conditions.
If large pupils are a factor in your less-than-perfect vision, you may not be the ideal candidate for this procedure. Similar to people with abnormally dry eyes, the degree to which your enlarged pupils is affecting your vision will be a big deciding factor in the decision of your LASIK Eye surgery. Typically, this decision is made on a case by case basis. Some surgeons are more technologically advanced than others, and enlarged pupils are not a barrier to progressing ahead with the surgery at all.
As always, and no matter what your condition is, it is crucial to keep in mind that just because a surgeon will perform the surgery does not always mean he or she should perform the surgery. If you're concerned that your abnormally large pupils are affecting your vision or may exclude you from this revolutionary procedure, schedule your LASIK consultation immediately. Your LASIK surgeon will determine your candidacy for laser vision correction, and most surgeons are not willing to risk your vision to gain your role as a patient.
