									The Advantages and Disadvantages of having LASIK Eye Surgery

LASIK Eye Surgery is a common form of eye surgery done mainly to correct certain eye problems and allow the patient to avoid wearing contacts and
glasses. It is very convenient and can be done quite quickly in an outpatient clinic. It does not require a hospital stay. Many people welcome this quick
procedure as a quick and convenient way to resolve their problems.

Unresolved problems within 6 months following this medical procedure are fairly low, only about 3%-6%. They include:

- Dry eyes
- Overcorrection or undercorrection
- Visual fluctuation
- Halos or starbursts around light sources at night
- Light sensitivity
- Ghosts (double vision)
- Wrinkles in flap (striae)
- Decentered ablation
- Debris or growth under flap
- Thin or buttonhole flap
- Astigmatism

Although these problems can occur in a small number of cases many people have no problems with LASIK Eye Surgery and find this to be a quick
and easy way to correct minor eye problems. However there are some criteria for not having this treatment done.

If you are below 18 it may not be a good idea to have this treatment as your eyesight can still be unstable at this age. Be sure your eyesight is not
changing before you have this procedure done. If you are pregnant or nursing do not have this treatment as your eyes change in shape when you are
in these conditions. Ideally you should not be taking any prescription drugs.

Try to be sure you are in good overall health before you have LASIK Eye Surgery done. It is always good to be aware of the risks and what
expectations you may have before undergoing this treatment. Always to consult with your eye specialist before having it done, as they will be able to
alert you to any risks you may be taking. Many times there are no problems and you will find this a very beneficial treatment.

Always remember that however popular a treatment is it may not necessarily be the right one for you. Always weigh the pros and cons before
deciding on any procedure. Keep in mind these few points before you decide to have LASIK Eye Surgery done so that you will get the most out of your
treatment. Remember your eyes are one of the most important organs in your body and you will need to be extra careful before you have any surgery
done on them.
