Is Ocular Herpes a contradiction if it hasn't spread to the cornea?

Hello, I have gotten cold sores since I was a child. Within the past two years or so, I have started getting herpetic sores on my eyelids or the surrounding skin. However, I have been tested recently by an ophthalmologist and the virus has not infected my cornea. Would I still be a good candidate for vision correction surgery? I am 22 and also have slight astigmatism; I am nearsighted, around -3.75 in each eye. Thank you!
