Laser Eye Surgery Risks
The most common risks of LASIK vision correction surgery with refractive lasers include:
- dry eye syndrome, which can be severe;
- the possible need for glasses or contact lenses after surgery;
- visual symptoms including halos, glare, starbursts, and double vision, which can be debilitating; and
- loss of vision.
If you were not frightened by the last mentioned risk then I think you can go ahead and take the procedure. But for me, even how small the risks are, I think it’s not worth it. Just do the math against one million people undergoing the surgery.
Below you will see stories of people with different cases of laser eye surgery gone wrong. The last video below shows the worst case of laser eye surgery gone wrong as it caused Dru’s mother to go blind. Laser eye surgery risks are REAL!
Story of People With Severe Dry Eyes and Visual Symptoms
Story of Someone Gone Blind Due To Laser Eye Surgery
Can you get blind because of laser eye surgery? The answer is yes there is a possibility. As mentioned above, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration themselves testifies that there is such a risk of going blind due to laser eye surgery.
But there are some people who says that there are no incident of blindness as a result of laser eye surgery, but that is dead wrong! Not sure if they are not doing their research right or are just part of the industry’s cover-ups.
Below is a video from Andrew (Dru) about his mother Kami gone blind due to laser eye surgery. I hope if any doctor is watching this and thinks that he/she is able to help them then please do leave a comment here or visit their website.
