If reduced vision occurs after the surgical procedure, it can be corrected by treatment or wearing corrective lenses. The problems that are permanent after the LASIK eye surgery include pain or discomfort, sensations of scratchiness or dryness, poor night vision, sensitivity to light and small pink or red patches on white of eye. Like other surgical procedures, inflammation and infection occur in LASIK eye surgery that can be treated by medications or other surgical procedure. If any problem exists in the corneal flaps additional surgery is required. Further treatment is required in case of ectasia or bulging of cornea. There are chances that a flap may dislodge or shift slightly in the first few hours after the operation. A small amount of debris or particles may be found under the flap after the surgeon has completed surgical procedure. Debris results from the instruments used and consists of tear-film oil or floating material that is usually present in everyone’s eyes. The surgeon may decide in the immediate postoperative period to remove this debris, but it has no visual significance. But severe infection, even if treated with antibiotics, lead to permanent scarring and loss of vision.
Changes made to the cornea cannot be reversed after laser eye surgery.
Laser eye surgery is typically complex and problems may occur when the doctor creates the flap, which can permanently cause loss of vision.
You may develop debilitating visual symptoms, particularly glare, halos, and double vision that can seriously affect night-time vision. As a result of surgery, your eye may not be able to produce enough tears.
Dry eye not only causes discomfort, but can reduce visual quality due to blurring and other visual symptoms.
There are chances that a flap may dislodge or shift slightly in the first few hours after the operation. If the flap moves, it can leave small wrinkles on the surface. These wrinkles can be easily removed by the surgeon when they are found.The other complications of LASIK eye surgery include watery eyes, burning sensation, and reduced vision in low light, induced astigmatism, and glare. Your vision may be blurry. If you suffer from severe pain you consult your LASIK eye surgeon immediately.
Although the results may vary, some patients’ notice dramatically better vision immediately after LASIK surgery. Healing is relatively fast, but you want to take a complete rest from work after the surgery. Avoid sports and other impact sports or similar activities for four weeks for three days after the surgery. If you experience a mild burning or sensation for a few hours after surgery please don’t rub your eye. Just approach your doctor, who will prescribe a painkiller, which will ease your discomfort. Thus reshaping of cornea enhances focusing power to a greater extent. The benefits realized by our patients involve lifestyle changes like free to swim, play, without wearing contact lenses or glasses
