Depending upon the type of injury and how it has affected your eye, it may be unwise to have LASIK. It may be possible to have other types of refractive surgery, such as PRK or Clear Lens Exchange (CLE), but all depends upon the exact nature of your eye injury.

My recommendation would be to seek the opinion of corneal and retina specialists. These doctors, more than any others, would be able to properly evaluate your appropriateness for refractive surgery.
