Answer

Thanks for your Question

One of the contraindications for lasik eye surgery is to have collagen diseases or auto-immune diseases such as psoriasis but recent studies showed the rate of complications of lasik eye surgery in these patients is the same as other healthy people.

So i think it will depend mainly on your eye doctor if he agrees to do it with you.
