Corrective Vision Surgery And Its Side Effects

 Corrective Vision Surgery

Corrective vision surgery may be termed as eye surgery for correcting or improving refractive errors.  We all know that the clear vision depends on the health of our cornea, lens and retina inside our eyes.  In the process of seeing anything the cornea and lens permit rays of light to fall upon our retina in side our eyes.  The rays are refracted i.e. bent so that these are well focused on the retina for sending back to the brain through optic nerve.

If there is something abnormal in our cornea or shape of our eyes, the light rays may not fall on the retina properly causing nearsightedness i.e. myopia, farsightedness i.e. hyperopia or blurred vision i.e. astigmatism or presbyopia.  The corrective vision surgery is done to correct the abnormal shape of cornea and to get rid of these vision problems.
Corrective vision surgery procedures include:
  • Laser In-Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK)
  • Wavefront-Guided LASIK (Custom LASIK)
  • Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK)
  • Radial Keratotomy (RK)
  • Astigmatic Keratotomy (AK)
  • Automated Lamellar Keratoplasty (ALK)
  • Laser Thermal Keratoplasty (LTK)
  • Conductive Keratoplasty (CK)
  • Intracorneal Ring (Intacs)

    Side Effects:

    Corrective vision surgery has its many side effects including

    • Corrective surgery may not be 100% safe for you
    • The surgery may not be 100% successful, overcorrected or undercorrected vision problem may be there after the corrective surgery
    • Corrective surgery may not be suitable for all
    • You may not be able to find an experienced surgeon to perform corrective vision surgery
    • During the healing process you may feel eye dryness
    • For sometime after the surgery you may feel dis-comfortable with your eyes
    • You may face problem of irregular astigmatism, which can decrease the corrected vision (astigmatism means blurring caused by an irregularly shaped cornea)
    • Glare, halos or night vision problems may be there
    • You may not be able to wear contact lenses in the future
      Other side effects like scarring, infection and vision loss are also connected to corrective surgery
