I heard that lasik eye surgery can treat with a lot of vision problems. I have some vision problem. I don't want to wear eyeglasses any more. But I don't know the risks of this surgery. Can you tell me?
If you want to throw your glasses, I would like to tell you that after lasik eye surgery, you may still need glasses or contact lenses to help you achieve the best vision. In low light circumstances, you may experience visual aberrations. You may have dry eye symptoms after this surgery. The worst one may be the loss of vision.
Like any surgeries, lasik eye surgery has some risks too. In order for decide whether lasik eye surgery is right for you, you need to know all the potential risks before proceeding with this surgery. One of the risks is that you may be over-corrected or under-corrected. If you cannot achieve quality vision, you may need a second surgery, we often call it an enhancement.
As with any surgery, LASIK eye surgery carries risks, including undercorrections,overcorrections,vision returning to pre-surgery vision,visual loss or changes,astigmatism,glare, halos and double vision.
