Smart consumers know they need to do research before buying any product or service.

LASIK Risks And Complications

How should you do your research? Science and medicine are highly technical. They include complicated statistics that non-scientists can find hard to follow.

People who post on social media can get them wrong — in fact, even professional reporters from the mainstream media can get confused. Add to that the natural fear that cimplicaciones feel about surgery — especially surgery involving the eyes — and the result is a lot of misinformation. People get confused about what percent of people in a study group reported an experience. They misunderstand what the purpose of the study was in the first place.

The way they do it is to combine different things into one big category to make problems seem much more serious and widespread than they are.

Side effects can be long-lasting, but many of complicaciobes go away quickly on their own. Side effects can complicaciomes be positive. Rogaine started life as a blood pressure treatment.

Riesgos y complicaciones de la cirugía LASIK –

In trials, it was discovered that Rogaine also helped to grow hair. That was a side effect that made a lot of people happy. The most common are those experienced as part of the normal healing process and recovery period. These include visual symptoms, such as glare, halos, ghosting and starbursts, as well as dry eye.


What makes these side effects and not complications is that they generally go away over time. Sometimes additional treatment may be needed. LASIK is surgery, and all surgeries come with risk. Surgical complications from laser vision correction are extremely rare.

But they do occur. Compplicaciones qualify as complications because they require additional treatment — it could be harmful to leave them untreated. Reports about that study complucaciones a great example of how coverage, including from major media outlets, can get LASIK complication statistics completely wrong.

In fact, new symptoms were reported in a small subset of the study population, not in half of the people who participated. So… in other words… the people reporting symptoms were between five and 10 percent of the study participants — not 45 percent. And over compicaciones, there were fewer of them. It lask even more problematic when people on social media pick up on mistaken information and re-broadcast it, either innocently, or to exploit it to sow fear.

Commplicaciones a word, no. However, nothing could be further from the truth. Naturally, you will want complicacionnes do your own research, and you should. Bring what you find out to get confirmation or clarification about any information to your consultation, because talking with a surgeon is the way to get the true facts about LASIK.

To do that, you need to know what questions to ask, and what facts really matter. Here are some questions to start with.


What are Side Effects? How common are they? Up to 30 percent of patients experience dry eye symptoms in the first three months after surgery. Less than five percent of the time, glasses, contact lenses or additional LASIK treatment may be needed to smooth out any remaining nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, or higher-order aberrations on the cornea that contribute to visual symptoms.

Some coomplicaciones have dry eye, glare, halos, night vision symptoms for six to 12 months — usually this is part of their healing. For those very few patients who experience these side lasikk there are therapeutic treatments. Here are the facts: It was designed to test a new questionnaire that would create a standardized way of reporting about the LASIK experience. What it found was that: A very small group of participants — 75 out of in the clmplicaciones study, and 68 out of in the second study — said they had had no visual symptoms before having LASIK.

At three months after surgery, 32 out complicaciomes the 75 said they had at least one new symptom. Six months after surgery, the total had decreased to 26 people — which is 36 percent of the small group of 75, but less than 5 percent of all the people in the first study.

In the second study, the numbers were similar. At three months after surgery, 31 out of the 68 people said they had at least one new symptom.
