In the past 15 years, there are almost 28 million people who have taken LASIK surgery, which has now been deemed a method of greatest safety. But some complications can not be avoided. Some of which are not easily detected, while others may cause vision problems. These side-effects may cause problems on one’s vision quality or acuity.
Before receiving LASIK surgery, one should take considerations of all risks and benefits. Sometimes the doctors can not tell all potential risks of such surgery or they neglect to inform the patients. The reason is that no doctor will think that such misfortune will happen on him and his patients. Unfortunately, such side-effects are not what one can choose or decide, but an inseparable part of the surgery. No facts have proved that the patients of the best doctors will not suffer from such side-effects. So do not believe any doctor who estimates the risks or says his patients will never suffer such side-effects.
Thus, one may tend to choose an experienced eye surgeon than a new doctor. Many papers have put that the doctor of LASIK should have a learning experience. Especially, the first few hundreds of patients may suffer more side effects. Of course, it is no need for one to choose a doctor who has experienced several thousands of cases or more. But it is needed to choose some who has done over one thousand cases.
Still more, the amount of side-effects in different time varies. Such there is a great decline in early 2010than 1990s. Of course, there are some reasons for it. The foremost important one is that a better understanding of the doctors on LASIK side-effects has been achieved. Hence, some methods for solution have been devised. Another reason is the great improvement of the technologies, by which safety are greatly enhanced. Some potential risks can be avoided and solutions are provided with the enhancement in technologies.
The LASIK side-effect profile technology has assured the safety of such surgery. And some people can get rid of wearing glasses after such surgery.
