Unlikely for a Medrol dose pack to have any effect here-
Oral steroids will not affect your LASIK results.
You can take your medrol . It does not affect you lasik.
It is unlikely that the Medrol dose will have an impact on your Lasik procedure four months earlier. You may wish to double check with your refractive surgeon however. Rona Z.
