Is Lasik Safe? does it have side effects?
Safety is a main concern that all LASIK candidates share.
The latest studies conducted show that LASIK and other types of laser eye surgery, such as PRK and LASEK, have an excellent safety profile and a very high success rate. They are designed to treat myopia (nearsightedness)
Sight-threatening complications such as complete or partial loss of vision from LASIK surgery are extremely rare, and many side effects and laser eye surgery complications can be resolved with additional surgery or medical treatment.
Like any other surgery, however, there are potential risks, side effects and limitations you should be fully aware of before electing to undergo the procedure (or any type of procedure, for that matter). Choosing a skilled and experienced LASIK eye surgeon can help reduce these risks and enable you to achieve the best possible results from laser eye surgery.
The first step is to determine if you are a good candidate for vision correction surgery. Your eye doctor will perform an advanced diagnostic eye exam to determine your suitability for LASIK surgery. He or she will evaluate: the shape and thickness of your cornea; pupil size; refractive errors; the moistness of your eyes (to check for dry eye syndrome); general health and medical history; and any medications you are taking.
Even if you are not a good candidate for LASIK, don’t worry — you might still be able to have your vision fixed with other vision correction surgery such as PRK, LASEK or implantable lenses.
