If I needed contact lenses after laser eye surgery, would I be able to wear them? Does lasik or lasek leave your cornea flatter?

Contact lens wear after laser vision correction
Nearly all patients who want or need to wear contacts after LASIK or LASEK are able to, assuming they were able to comfortably wear them prior to their procedure. In exceptionally rare cases, corneal refractive surgery will make it more difficult or impossible to wear contacts.
