    Lasik Surgery Risks / Risks of Lasik Surgery

    Lasik surgery is an effective procedure where most patients are satisfied with their vision following the procedure. But getting a surgery does come with some risk. Before getting a surgery, you need to be aware of potentials risk and complications. After getting a surgery your results may not be permanent. You might still have difficulty in seeing at night and results in worse vision where you still need to wear glasses or contact lenses. In some cases, most people experience dryness in the eyes immediately after the surgery due to temporary decrease in tear production and causes eyes to reduce the quality of vision. It is necessary to consult your doctor before getting a Lasik surgery to prevent from all the risk.

    Hope this helps.
