LASIK treatment, like any other surgery, can in rare cases cause some complications. Since its invention in 1988 in the US, LASIK surgery is widely known, used and accepted worldwide as it rarely brings serious problems. Selecting a reputable eye surgeon is the single best thing you can do to ensure successful outcome of your surgery and in case of complications, he can address them properly. As part of your LASIK consultation and pre-operative exam, your doctor will thoroughly evaluate the health of your eyes to rule out chronic dry eye, thin corneas, unusually large pupils and other factors that might affect your LASIK surgery outcome. Even with these precautions some serious problems like not so clear vision and dry eyes may occur.
