I'm getting Wavefront Blade-Free Lasik in a couple days. I smoke cigarettes and marijuana. Will it be a problem to use either of these substances after my surgery? If so how long should I avoid them?

Customer:

Thank you

Dr. Tom : Are you available to chat?
Customer:

Yes

Dr. Tom : Your upcoming laser vision correction will be a thrilling moment for you. Don't worry about your use of the product you mentioned. They will not have any bearing on the outcome of your surgery.
Customer:

So there's no timeframe for not using it before or after?

Dr. Tom : The use of tobacco products Does not have to be discontinued.
Customer:

Ok, thank you. I suppose I'm not going to find a doctor that's going to say it's ok to smoke cannabis.
