LASIK and Keloid Scars?

Sally asked:

I am considering laser eye surgery but am prone to keloid scars. Would this be a problem?

My reply was:

Hi Sally
Keloid scarring should be no problem with LASIK laser eye surgery. I have done several patients with keloid and had excellent LASIK vision results. No problems with healing at all.
Best regards, Dave
