Will neovascularization (contact lenses) in white part of eye heal? Am I able to do LASIK?

LASIK, Neovascularization, cornea
The simple answer is that what you call blood vessels on the white of the eye will most likely not interfere with laser vision correction. However, I am concerned that those engorged blood vessels may have a different etiology, cause, such as episcleritis. And I said laser vision correction because of those engorged blood vessels making it difficult to create the suction needed for the flap creation with or without a blade. Besides PRK is overall a SAFER procedure .
