The Side Effects And Risks Of Laser Eye Surgery

Laser eye surgery is a very common procedure, used to correct various vision problems including astigmatism, farsightedness, and nearsightedness. Although laser eye surgery is an extremely safe procedure, it can have short-term side effects such as mild pain, itchiness, irritation, and light sensitivity. Long-term complications in some cases include flap issues, dry eyes, over/under correction, bulging of the cornea, infection, and inflammation.
