Many patients desiring Wavefront Intralase LASIK ask us regarding their blood pressure. High Blood Pressure is termed as Hypertension. In our Beverly Hills Surgery Center we monitor all patients ‘ blood pressure when they undergo cataract or Prelex surgery. Blood Pressure has two components- systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure. Its best to have your blood pressure well controlled before any procedure. Hypertension, per se will not cause any problems with your laser vision enhancement. Our Los Angeles LASER expert, Rajesh Khanna, MD has done thousands of LASIK surgeries, including many in patients who had hypertension.
