Is Lasik Eye Surgery Safe?

By Dr.Richard Meister Subscribe to RSS | February 1st 2012 | Views:

Lasik surgery is a procedure done to rectify a person’s vision problem. It reduces a person’s dependency on spectacles and contact lenses. If we look at the trend, number of people opting for Lasik eye surgery is increasing day by day. They do it to get rid of glasses and contact lenses.

Before going for the surgery it’s very important to know whether it is safe or not. However this is a surgery, it also has some risks involved with it like other surgeries. So it’s important to understand the limitations and complications associated with Lasik surgery.

Some people are advised not to go for Lasik surgery because of their profession. Like if you are a pilot or you drive a lorry every night, you should not take the risk. Reason behind this is that surgeons cannot promise that after surgery you will have perfect vision. There are chances that some patients may have night vision problems after the surgery.

Some patients may face problem of dry eye syndrome after surgery. In such situation eye cannot produce enough tears to keep eye moist and causes discomfort. In this kind of situation your surgeon prescribes you some eye drops and you can overcome this problem easily. So this is not such a big issue.

There are chances of corneal damage and vision loss. But these complications are rarest of rare and happens only very few cases.

In some situations it is also possible that, you still need to use your glasses even after getting the surgery done. But this happens only with those who have large refractive errors.

In some cases vision is not rectified in one surgery. In this situation patient has to undergo another surgery. This is a big risk for you both financially and health wise.

Risk is everywhere, but you cannot stop yourself from doing the things, because it has solution as well. There are so many success stories about the Lasik surgery and so many people are there who are enjoying the benefits of Lasik Surgery. This is up to you to increase the chances of successful surgery by selecting an experienced surgeon who has performed more successful surgeries.

There are number of risk associated with the Lasik eye surgery, but there also lots of people who have experienced positive results from the surgeries they have undergone. This risk can be minimized by consulting a best surgeon and discussing all the possible results with him. It is responsibility of your surgeon also, that he assess your case properly and let you know about the all possible outcomes, so that you can take your decision.

Now more improved technologies are also there which have reduced the risk involved in Lasik Surgery. One more thing you need to do is to follow your surgeon’s post operative instructions strictly.
