Hi, it\u2019s Matt Russell from VSON Laser Vision Specialists. When I tell people I\u2019m a LASIK surgeon, some of them ask me: \u201cHow dangerous is LASIK eye surgery?\u201d It\u2019s not dangerous at all if you choose a surgeon with the right skills and experience. LASIK eye surgery is the best known and most commonly performed laser refractive surgery to correct vision problems. Complications that result in a loss of vision are very rare. However, certain side effects of LASIK eye surgery, particularly dry eyes and temporary visual problems such as glare, are fairly common. These usually clear up after a few weeks or months, and very few people consider them to be a long-term problem. Certain health conditions can increase the risks associated with LASIK surgery or make the outcome less predictable. The best thing you can do is to discuss all of these factors at your consultation and address any concerns you may have.
