I Have Blood Vessels in the Middle of my Eye and Was Told 'LASIK is Not Possible. Is It True?

I went to a doctor who told me that LASIK is out of the question because I have blood vessels going through the middle of my eyes. Does LASIK really work this way?

Significant neo-vascularization of the central cornea generally is a contraindication to LASIK, depending on the severity.
