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?

Dr. Tom : Hi, I'm online now and would be happy to help you with your question. Just reply and we'll get started. Dr. Tom

Thank you

Dr. Tom : Are you available to chat?


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.

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.

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