LASIK Surgery Complications LASIK continues to be one of the safest and most effective vision correction procedures available, but still poses some health risks. If the laser beam is not targeted to the right area, or if too much corneal tissue is removed, you may experience blurry night vision, the inability to focus, or you may see halos around lights. Some people also develop irregular astigmatism, especially if the eye does not heal properly, or they have excess scar tissue. Examples are night vision anomalies like halos around lights and starbursts; and ghosting – faint duplicate images of each object you focus on. These vision features have sometimes been side effects of traditional LASIK, based as it was on the less subtle phoropter diagnosis of your visual acuity. But Custom LASIK treats them along with the lower order aberrations, to give you both more clear vision and higher-quality clear vision. To protect your eye, a shield will be placed around your eye. This is to prevent you from accidentally rubbing your eye or putting any pressure onto your eye. Your cornea is especially vulnerable in this early postoperative period, which is why it is very important to keep your eye protected. If you are having both eyes treated during the same surgery, the surgeon will reposition the laser over your other eye and the same process will be repeated for the second eye.
