Lasik eye surgery has come in for some flak by a few patients who are unhappy with their vision, post surgery. According to the FDA about 5 percent of patients are not happy with the surgery, prompting the agency to embark on a detailed study on Lasik eye surgery patients.
Federal health officials were witness to complaints from patients, disappointed with the quality of vision after lasik eye surgery. They complained of great pain and discomfort. Some of them also experienced double vision and blurred vision post surgery.
According to a patient's really bad experience, since 1998 when he underwent Lasik eye surgery, the patient had "not experienced a moment of crisp, good quality vision since."
Though most patients are happy with the surgery and experience sharper vision, there are still many grappling serious side effects like poor vision and abysmal nocturnal vision.
Nearly 7.6 million Americans have undergone laser vision correction. Some of the patients boast of a 20/20 vision after the corrective procedure.
Even though the FDA has received about 140 complaints from disappointed patients, ophthalmologist Dr. Robert Cykiert enthusiastically supports the treatment and is positive of its benefits for those who meet with the requirements of such a procedure.
