Laser Surgery: Night Vision Problems?

Feb 6, 2008
A good Houston lasik Surgeon will make sure his or her patient knows that complications associated with refractive surgery are minimal. The physician will also be upfront about risks.

As with any procedure, lasik surgery in Houston, Texas is not without potential complications and you can experience post-op problems.

When seeking laser lasik, patients should ask informed questions, which any qualified lasik surgeon will answer. Caring lasik doctors understand the apprehension about operating on something as valuable as ones eyesight.

Be wary of any lasik surgeon who makes you feel as if you don't have a right to ask voice your concerns.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW

First off, let me reiterate that most lasik surgery in Houston Texas goes off without a hitch. This is because it has been perfected over time and many of the early issues have been resolved.

However, for that person in a thousand who is having issues, the statistics are of little comfort.

The good news:

Some of the problems a laser lasik patient may experience will go away on its own over time, with little to no intervention.

The most common issues patients face after lasik surgery in Houston Texas are dry eyes or infection. Drops to supply moisture and oral antibiotics usually correct this issue. Another problem is inflammation, which is generally associated with the dryness and/or infection. This too usually recedes with treatment.

Under or over correction is a minor complication that can be resolved with an enhancement procedure, the cost of which is sometimes included in the original fee. These tweaks and adjustments, often performed by your lasik surgeon, will have risks as well. If you can see pretty well, it is best to steer clear of them.

The more inconvenient or downright frightening side effects of lasik surgery can be Night Glare that produces rings and Halos. While this may be a normal side effect it can be problematic in regards to night driving.

Ghosts, halos, even irregular corneas can be corrected. Many Houston lasik surgeons utilize the FDA approved wavefront treatment to tweak eyes having issues.

After laser lasik, patients need to be aware of what to look out for, and what their options are in the areas of post-operative correction. Most won't have any complications, and will enjoy their new eyes, giving thanks to the healing hands of their lasik surgeon!

The good news about lasik eye surgery, Houston Texas inhabitants may be interested to hear, is that, in most cases, vision correction is permanent, but this can depend, as with all things, on genetics. If your eyeglass or contact lens prescription was stable, i.e. , hadn't altered in years, chances are the correction will last. If however, you eye sight was degenerative, there will be little a lasik surgeon can do to make the change stick.
