Many patients have undergone radial keratotomy (RK), LASIK, PRK and other refractive surgeries with significant success. However, unfortunately, there are many people out there who have even had the newest LASIK procedures, but are still experiencing post Lasik side effects. One of the side effects of LASIK surgery is glare. This means that when a patient looks at bright lights, the light is especially harsh. This can be particularly problematic on bright days, in bright rooms, or while driving at night. Unfortunately it is one of the most common side effects of LASIK.
In a new FDA report 45% of the subjects, who were symptom free prior to LASIK, developed symptoms such as halos, starbursts, glare, and ghosting post LASIK surgery.
