LASIK Risks and Side Effects
Q1. Does LASIK surgery come with any risks?
Yes, of course. Every surgery has its own risks, and all these risks will vary among individuals.
Which is why our NO COMPROMISE, pre-treatment eye examinations take 2 to 3 times longer, or require more measurements than other clinics. We need to make sure that
- you are really suitable for treatment, and that the surgery can be performed on your eyes safely, and with minimal risk.
- you understand the risks that may apply to your eye condition.
Q2. Does LASIK surgery come with any side effects?
Yes, they do. The side effects that come with LASIK are normally short-term, and during the recovery process.
Some of the common ones are:
- temporary dry eyes, which can be overcome with the use of artificial tears or lubricant drops
- minor vision fluctuation during the recovery process
Which is why your post operative checkups are scheduled in a such way that we can monitor your recovery process.
