How To Avoid Complications With LASIK Surgery

By Nicola Kennedy

As with any surgery, LASIK has a few complications. Scientific studies conducted in the late 1990s depicted that a meager 5% of LASIK eye surgeries resulted in some sort of complication. However, expert eye surgeons claim that the complication rate drops well below 1% if the patient is thoroughly examined prior to the surgery, so as to ensure that the procedure is feasible and beneficial.

Though quite rare, complications due to LASIK do occur. The following are some of the frequently reported complications of LASIK eye surgery.

- Dry eye syndrome

- Light sensitivity

- Halos or glare around light sources at night

- Over/under-correction

- Ghosts/double vision

- Induced astigmatism

LASIK eye surgery involves the cutting of a flap in the cornea, which is lifted for laser re-shaping of the eye. The flap is then replaced to form a type of natural bandage. Complications may arise if the flap is not cut correctly, which may result in an uneven eye surface and a vision defect called irregular astigmatism.

The above stipulated complications may give an impression that LASIK is a risk-prone surgery. However, much to the patient's relief, LASIK complications can be rectified through laser re-treatments or enhancements of the eye. Furthermore, it is very much a rare exception that a LASIK surgery would cause significant vision deterioration. That is, there have been only a scant few cases that the corrected vision was actually worse than it was before surgery. Such rare cases can be attributed to the eye surgeon's inexperience and the lack of a through pre-operative examination.

Though LASIK does have potential side effects, all such complications can be averted by opting for an experienced eye surgeon who takes that extra precaution while performing the surgery. The truth is that LASIK is by far the most efficient procedure when it comes to corrective eye surgery. With a minimal complication rate, LASIK is a near risk-free proposition.

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
