I am wondering if anyone with ITP has had LASIK eyes surgery? I am currently on Promacta to control my platelets and they have been at 55 for a few months. My doctor thinks it is fine as long as my platelets stay in that range. Just wanting to see if anyone else has had this done.

I have not had LASIK; but two ophthalmologists, in separate instances, proposed different surgeries to me.  They didn't foresee problems at any count but did require at least 50 for maximum safety.  For every other procedure I've had, including major oral surgery, the doctors wanted a count of 50.  You're probably good to go, but ask at the surgery center you're using to make sure.
