How to Increase Your Eyesight and Eye Vision

If you don’t plan on wearing glasses or contact lenses, laser eye surgery is the way to go. However, using high-energy lasers comes at a price and it’s not just about money. Complications of laser eye surgery can affect anyone who decides to undergo such a procedure, and one must be fully aware and prepared for such risks, otherwise it can lead to very unpleasant surprises.

By far the most common complication of laser eye surgery is permanent dry eyes

This is caused by the laser itself, which not only burns the internal corneal tissue, but also cuts the corneal nerves that feed the lacrimal glands. This results in a lack of feedback from the brain, which usually indicates tear production and thus dry eye syndrome occurs. The eye drops prescribed for you after laser eye surgery should be used to relieve dry eye symptoms such as pain, itching, burning, a feeling of something in the eye, and the feeling that the eye is sticking to the eyelid. If you are still experiencing persistent dry eyes 6 months after surgery, it is most likely a permanent side effect. Regular visits to the doctor up to 6 months after surgery should have prevented such incidents.

Another of the most common complications of laser eye surgery is debilitating eye disease. This manifests itself in the form of night glow, halos, starbursts, and ghostly vision. Night glare is an enhanced effect of night glare, which often means longer glare recovery time. This leads to increased glare and makes viewing at night difficult, especially in the presence of light. Halos also appear around lights and generally appear as halo rings around those lights. Starbursts are similar to halos, except that the lights appear to exude a bright or overly bright effect, much like a particularly bright star in the sky. Ghost vision essentially results in double vision and creates some kind of numbing effect. All of these symptoms are often combined with each other and can seriously affect a patient’s vision, especially at night. It may take some time to fully recover, perhaps a few months, before these symptoms significantly subside.

Under or over correction can also be a complication of laser surgery

 In any case, this is related to the patient’s recovery rate, as it varies from person to person. Any difficulty with clear vision without glasses or contact lenses should be treated with glasses or weaker contact lenses. The patient should also wait for the prescription to stabilize before continuing with eye surgery to completely correct vision.

These are some of the complications of laser eye surgery that can occur after surgery. With proper planning and knowledge that you can get at, there should be a reasonable opportunity to eliminate the side effects of laser eye surgery and achieve perfectly clear vision.
