If you have done your double eyelid surgery for at least 3 months before your LASIK surgery, there should not be any significant added risk.
There is usually minimal risk involved for post-double eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) in patients who wish to have laser vision correction (PRK, LASIK, ReLEx SMILE).
Post-blepharoplasty patients may experience dry eye after the surgery. If you are experiencing any long-term dryness, do let your ophthalmologist know. Your ophthalmologist will measure your tear production and also observe if your eyes are able to close properly during the pre-laser evaluation. If you do have dry eye, you might be more suited for PRK and SMILE as they give a lower incidence of dry eye compared to LASIK.
As long as your eyes are able to close properly and you have a healthy amount of tear production, laser vision correction can be performed with minimal risks. Do consult your ophthalmologist to discuss options best suited for your eyes.
