What Happens When Corners Are Cut
Many injuries from Lasik surgery can be traced to failure to screen candidates
properly before the surgery. Screening for a condition called keratoconus
is crucial because if that condition is present, there may already be
a degenerative thinning of the retina that makes vision correction surgery unsafe.
Unfortunately, too many Lasik surgery operations do not provide adequate
training for their surgeons and other staff in detecting keratoconus.
The injuries that can result from this failure include:
- Burning of the eye, particularly the cornea
- Double vision
- Seeing star bursts, halos
- Poor night vision
- Pain in the eye
These are problems that cannot be fixed by just putting glasses or contacts
back on. In fact, when the cornea has been damaged severely, the injury
can even be disabling.
