Question:
Can you wear contacts if needed after LASIK vision correction?    

Answer:
It should be no problem to wear contact lenses after LASIK surgery. The hope is that the LASIK will eliminate the need for contact lenses but some cases have small refractive errors that develop or may persist after LASIK surgery. As long as the eyes are not dry or irritated, contact lens wear should be no problem if needed.
