Many people have achieved overwhelming success with the procedure and have greatly reduced their dependence on glasses or contacts. Their active lifestyles are now a lot more convenient. For some people, it’s just being able to see the alarm clock in the morning that makes all the difference in the world. It’s important to be aware of the risks involved with LASIK. There may be some occurrence of glare or halos, usually experienced at night or under fluorescent lighting. This occurs because as the pupil expands in dim illumination, light is allowed to pass through the corrected and uncorrected portions of the cornea. As with any surgery, there is also a chance of complications, but occurrences are less than one percent.
It is important to seek the advice and council of only the most experienced and qualified doctor when inquiring about the LASIK procedure. Barenburg Eye Associates work with only the best and most experienced LASIK surgeons in North America. Our doctors will evaluate you as a candidate for the procedure and then recommend several exceptional surgeons from which you may choose.
