Laser eye surgery is a painless procedure that can permanently cure a number of eye ailments to forever free you from glasses and contact lenses. A gentle laser is shined on the eye to reshape the cornea to correct a range of conditions including cataracts, myopia (short-sightedness), hyperopia (long-sightedness) and astigmatism (refractive error of the eye).
Potential risk of negligence
Complications occur in less than five per cent of cases, according to the Royal College of Ophthalmologists. Some people have a problem with dry eyes in the months after surgery and artificial tear supplements might be needed in the long term. Many patients have experienced glare or halo effects when night driving, particularly just after treatment. Some patients may not be suitable candidates for laser eye surgery and thorough screening beforehand should identify these.
