Is night vision bad after SmartSight?

Hi, it’s Dr. Russell from VSON. When I tell people I’m a LASIK surgeon, some ask me: “Is night vision bad after SmartSight?”.

Some people have problems with their night vision after laser eye surgery, but the chances of this happening are very low. That is especially true for modern procedures like LASIK and SmartSight.

Complaints can include the likes of glare and halos around objects, which can distort your vision. You may also have symptoms during the day too, however, they tend to be more noticeable and more tedious at night.

Of course, how one patient reacts to LASIK or SmartSight is not the same for all. Therefore, the characteristics of your eyes (i.e. the size of your pupils) may make you more prone to night vision problems after laser eye surgery.

We recommend you ask your eye surgeon to check before any laser eye surgery procedure to see if you’re at risk. An initial assessment is the best way to find out if you’re a suitable candidate for laser eye surgery.
