Dangerous Laser Eye Surgery Risks No One Will Tell You about!

Aug 26, 2008
There seems to be no end to where technology can take us. We all think nothing of using home PCs and the Internet these days and if we are tired of using contacts or eyeglasses in many cases we can just have laser eye surgery performed to eradicate the problem.

It is no secret these days that laser eye surgery can be in many cases a very good way for people to forego the struggle of having to live with bad eyesight.

Nevertheless even though laser eye surgery is understandably very popular these days like all medical procedures it is not without its risks.

Some of these complications are already well known about by the public at large; however this isn't the case with all of them so we will try to shed some light on them here.

Possible complications that can take place in laser eye surgery

Besides the commonly known complications in laser eye surgery such as over and under correction, there are other more rare complications that can take place.

It is very rare and only 1% of patients suffer from it but central corneal islands have been known to create problems for patients. Essentially central corneal islands occur when tissue is not removed uniformly across the eye.

Depending on your case you may have the option to undergo more surgery to correct this problem, but if not you will probably have to wear correction lenses of some kind.

DLK or diffuse lamellar keratitis as it is known technically is another complication known to take place in eye surgery when foreign bodies manage to find themselves within the corneal flap.

When this occurs a patient can experience blurred eyesight, more than normal sensitivity to light, possibly some pain and or the sensation that something is trapped in the patient's eye.

When this occurs the patient's doctor will in most cases subscribe an oral or topical medication and this should cure the problem.

Epithelial in-growths can grow under the patient's corneal flap and in doing so cause significant vision problems.

Also, there is the corneal ecstasia that may weaken the cornea and make it bulge after surgery. This occurs when the surgeon creates a deeper incision during the flap creation process then necessary or when he or she removes too much corneal tissue.

When this occurs the only available option is to perform a corneal transplant to put the damage right.

So these are a few of the eye surgery complications that can take place, it's important to remember that these complications only happen to a very small percentage of people undergoing laser eye surgery.
