b) Undercorrections: If the too little tissues are removed by laser from your eye then you will not get the clearer vision results as you were hoping for. The people who have nearsighted for those under corrections are more common. You may need another LASIK procedure within a year to remove more tissue.
c) Overcorrections: There is a possibility that the laser will remove too much tissue from your eye. Overcorrections in such cases may be more difficult to fix than under corrections.
d) Glare, halos, and double vision: After LASIK eye surgery you may face difficulty seeing at night. You might experience glare, halos around bright lights, or double vision. This condition of your eye will generally last for a few days to a few weeks. Even when a good visual result is measured under standard testing conditions at that time also your vision in dim light may be reduced to a greater extent after the surgery as compared to before the surgery.
e) Flap problems: While removing the flap or folding it back from the front of your eye during surgery can cause complications which include infection and excess tears. It has also been found that the outermost corneal tissue layer may grow abnormally underneath the flap during the healing process.
f) Vision loss or change: You may experience a vision loss due to surgical complications and there are chances that some people may not see as sharply or clearly as previously.
g) Astigmatism: Astigmatism is caused by the removal of uneven tissue. It may require additional surgery, glasses, or contact lenses.
How the surgeon will perform Lasik Eye Surgery in India?
The surgeons at the hospitals under We Care India perform the Lasik Eye Surgery in India by creating a very thin superficial flap in your cornea with a small surgical tool which is known as a microkeratome or with a femtosecond laser.
The surgeon will fold back the hinged flap so that they can easily access the underlying cornea and removes some corneal tissue using an excimer laser.
Excimer lasers are a tool that creates a cool ultraviolet light beam that helps your eye surgeon in removing the microscopic amounts of tissue from the cornea to reshape it so that light entering in your eye focuses more accurately on the retina for improved vision.
The people who have nearsighted they require to flatten the cornea and people with farsighted need a steeper cornea. With the help of excimer lasers, astigmatism can also be corrected by smoothing an irregular cornea into a more normal shape.
Your eye surgeon will place the flap laid back after the laser ablation reshapes the cornea and will cover the area where the corneal tissue was removed. During your healing period, the flap seals to the underlying cornea following the surgery.
