Is it safe to use an inversion table three years after LASIK surgery?
Absolutely. It will not affect your LASIK surgery. I use one myself. It really keeps the old back stretched out. I do tell patients with glaucoma to avoid using it for too long (5 minutes or more) as it can cause intraocular pressure to rise for a period of time.
