All patients experience dry eye symptoms during the first 3 months following their procedure; the frequent use of artificial tears is necessary during this time of healing. On rare occasions, permanent severe dry eye symptoms may result from LASIK surgery.
Glare or halos around lights may interfere with your ability to drive at night or see well in dim light. Your surgeon will discuss your particular risk for these side effects during your evaluation.
We educate our patients about all possible side effects prior to surgery, but not all problems can be anticipated. If unexpected side effects do occur, we manage them to the best of our ability and work with you to obtain the best possible visual outcome.
