1. Was wondering if being obese has an effect on the outcome of lasik? What happens if you lose weight after the surgery will there be a change in vision?

There are many indirect problems related to obesity that can affect the eyes, such as diabetic retinopathy, however I am unable to find studies indicating a direct link between rapid weight reduction and problems with refractive surgery like Lasik.
