Concerning cancer and laser or lasic no relation between and cancer is not a side effect or a complication of the surgery .
That is how this effect happened :
>Refractive surgery alters corneal thickness and biomechanical properties. Consequently, the measurement of intraocular pressure (IOP) is inaccurate after LASIK.
For the same reason i mean measurements if after wards in the future the patient has a cataract (not from surgery -but for any reason )there might be inaccurate measurements . Cataract surgery involves removal of the natural lens inside the eye and implantation of an artifical intraocular lens (IOL). The altered corneal shape after LASIK results in inaccurate measurement of the intraocular lens power for cataract surgery.
This means that patients who have LASIK surgery and later develop cataracts may be right back in glasses after cataract surgery -- or worse, subjected to the inherent risks of multiple surgeries but again let the doctor know that you had an eye surgery whenever you had an eye problem or you need an eye measurements and surgery .
In conclusion ,it will not cause cancer ,nor glaucoma ,nor cataract ,but other measurements should be held than other non lasik people
