LASIK Risks

From its inception, LASIK has been one of the safest and most dependable surgeries in all of medicine. Over time, advancements in technology and techniques have made it possible to achieve superior outcomes with minimal risk of undesirable side effects.

Of course, this does not mean that LASIK is a risk-free procedure. Indeed, every surgery – laser eye surgery and otherwise – carries with it some degree of risk. During consultations with Dr. Chen at his office in San Diego, LASIK risks are explained to patients in detail so that they can make informed, confident decisions about their care.

Common LASIK Risks and Side Effects

It should be noted that most of the common side effects of LASIK are mild and temporary. Dr Chen carefully screens patients to ensure that only the most qualified candidates will be allowed to undergo the procedure. This meticulous screening process dramatically reduces the possibility of serious risks occurring.

Common risks of LASIK include:

Again, it is important to note that, in most cases, the above risks are temporary and easily treated. In general, LASIK complications are very rare, especially when the surgery is performed by a surgeon such as Dr. Chen.
