Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello and thanks for your question. No, there is no truth to that. I have done plenty of cataract surgeries on persons who have had RK and/or LASIK before. The calculations regarding what power of lens-implant to insert in the patient's eye after the cataract is removed can sometimes be a bit more complicated than they would had they not had corneal refractive surgery prior, but this is not a contraindication to having cataract surgery by any means.
