Problems with laser eye surgery

Not everyone is perfect and there are times when the problems of laser eye surgery can occur. Most of the time, which can cause irritation to other common side effects of ocular surgery. However, patients who are less fortunate are left with permanent effects, debilitating side that often lead to demands and even depression.

Laser eye surgery does have ramifications in many techniques, one of them is LASIK. The problems associated with laser eye surgery may be due to defects or eyes the eyes of patients and surgeons. The most characteristic complication of LASIK flap complication is caused by the surgeon to mislead the back flap of the cornea. This can cause irregularities in vision, such as ghosting and double vision. The surgeon may also cut the flap too deeply or too burned stromal tissue during the current procedure, which can lead to keraectasia or swelling of the eye. This complication can be treated with rigid gas permeable lenses or corneal implants designed to hold the cornea in place.

Another complication that can occur flap is diffuse lamellar keratitis (DLK). This is very unusual for the surgeon is constantly adding antibiotics in the operated eye during the procedure, but may still occur because the instruments are not properly disinfected. DLK usually occurs under the flap, causing inflammation and severe vision loss if not controlled. If you encounter a type of inflammation in the center of your eyes, then you must return to the surgeon so they can open the valve to clean all inflammatory cells, thereby preventing tissue damage.

Some other problems with laser eye surgery is the regression of sight or correction. It is no longer applicable to these candidates for laser eye surgery with very high requirements. However, this problem can still occur when the surgeon does not have a sufficiently deep corneal ablation. I know a case where a man PRK surgery with a high enough script continued to complain of contrast vision problems, such as glare, halos and glare and also had the sensitivity to light. That meant it was very painful for him to see the computer screen or television, because of this increased sensitivity and also by the fact that his eyes were healing. However, the main complaint was that you see no improvement in vision and said his vision was blurred even after surgery, or not wearing your contact lenses. It was most likely due to the removal of the cornea, the surgeon is not deep enough and, as such, has experienced what surgeons call a shortsighted miserable. This condition can be easily solved with a follow up visit with the surgeon, I’m sure he did.

In general, the most common problems associated with laser eye surgery are self-limiting and eventually, the eye is able to heal. For other patients, this can not be the case and regular contact with your doctor or surgeon can help monitor the progress of their eyes, and whether to take action to resolve certain complications.
