Lasik Surgery

Is it common to experience side effects to LASIK surgery?

Are you looking for LASIK surgery in Denver or Fort Collins? Dr. Paul Cutarelli can explain in detail the options for your LASIK surgery and address any side effects or questions that you may have about LASIK.

As with any surgery, invasive or non-invasive, there is always a risk for side effects. With LASIK surgery, this is no exception. While patients may experience discomfort in the first few days after LASIK surgery, the other side affects, while rare, may include:

  • Glare or Halos
  • Difficulty Driving at Night
  • Fluctuating Vision
  • Dry Eyes

Keep in mind that if you happen to be one of the patients that experiences these side effects, these are typically corrected as your eye heal after the surgery between 3-6 months. LASIK has been performed for over 20 years in the United States and continues to be one of the safest and most successful laser vision correction procedures performed.
