Halo, this is one of the most common side effects associated with getting Lasik Surgery, this includes small glares, a halo?s that are associated with night vision and sometimes the patient may experience dry eyes.

Under Corrected or Over Corrected Vision: When this occurs the patient will need further treatment or corrective lenses and or contact lenses. The great news is that these complications do dissipate between a few days to 3-6 months after Lasik surgery. For more information it is best to ask your doctor and ask for stats from his or her patients.

Implantable Lenses for Natural Occurrences:
Although Lasik Surgery can correct vision, it does not prevent the onset of Presbyopia, which in laymen terms is the decline in vision that those in middle age and after experience. This can be noted when one has to ready with corrective lenses. The best treatment and the most reliable treatment for Presbyopia is contact lenses. Some patients do not like the daily hassles of messing with contact lenses, dry eyes, etc, and opt to have a lens implanted to replace their eye?s natural lens. This is an option if you experience nearsightedness, which most common resulting from Presbyopia. From a professional and medical opinion this is the best option for those whose vision cannot be corrected with Lasik Surgery. Now, on to more Lasik complications.

Light Sensitivity.
This complication is one of the most common of those who undergo Lasik surgery. This side effect will generally last around 5 days after Lasik Surgery.

?Starbursts?, Glare and the Infamous Halo These are classified as general vision problems when the flap of the corneal does not correctly adhere after replacement. This side effect will disappear after the first month. Another cause for this is when the pupil will dilate larger than the previous treatment zone.

Dry Eyes
This side effect shows itself through redness of the eyes, sometimes blurred vision, itchiness of the eye, eye crusting, or the false sensation that an object is in the eye such as dust or dirt.

Astigmatism This is when the cornea becomes warped as a result of Lasik sugery, this warping is due from scarring and results in a complete failure of the Lasik surgery. Those who experience this side effect will still have to wear corrective lenses.

The great news about these side effects is that the further advances in Lasik technology can reduce the amount of these side effects. Infact there this a new Lasik procedure call Intralasik which is bladeless and uses a laser. The result is less complications with the flas that can cause Astigmatism. Since these new developments, the risks for the above side effects diminish rapidly and as science and technology drive forward less instances will be noted by patiences.
