Symptoms of a LASIK Surgery Gone Wrong

You did the research and decided receiving LASIK surgery was a good option for you. After interviewing a few different doctors, you settled on a facility in Boise and had the surgery. You followed all of the doctor’s instructions, but now you feel like something went wrong. Unfortunately, refractive surgery doesn’t work for everyone and some patients actually have worse vision after the procedure than they did before. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, your surgery may have gone wrong.

Are You the Victim of LASIK Medical Malpractice?

Signs your LASIK surgery has caused damage:

  • Your eyes feel itchy and dry. LASIK surgery can damage the nerves that are responsible for tear production and cause chronic dry eye.
  • You see halos around objects. You may also experience haziness.
  • You have difficulty seeing at night.
  • You suffer from extreme pain following the surgery.
  • You experience difficulty seeing the fine details of objects.
  • You see “starbursts.”
  • You experience sensitivity to light.

 

Some LASIK specialists believe these symptoms are minor and that the benefits of the surgery far outweigh the risks. Just about anyone who experiences these problems after the procedure, however, is greatly hindered by the effects.

Many patients who undergo the procedure still require the use of reading glasses. Additionally, they may require further laser treatments because of the problems and could have to apply drops to their eyes for some time after the surgery.
