Folds in the flap
The next day following laser, there is a very small number of patients, about 1%, where there are microscopic little folds in the flap that need to be smoothed out, which is a relatively simple process.
Once that’s done, the laser flap is typically stable, and the vision returns to being excellent.
Infection and loss of vision
As far as things that can seriously affect the vision, such as infection, the risk for those types of problems is less than one in 20,000.
The risk of losing vision altogether in the eye from laser is less than one in 3 million.
Those are very, very, very rare cases which only ever occur in a small number of LASIK patients in the millions of surgeries that have been done since the laser was developed in the early 1990s.
