If you are considering Lasik, you should be aware of the risks and complications that this procedure involves. Lasik is being touted as a nearly risk-free operation. There is still a fraction of less than 1% people who do experience vision problems following Lasik. Problems include blinding light distortions, double or triple vision, or even extreme complications that sometimes cannot be fixed. The most important thing is to find a qualified surgeon who explains all the risks and benefits and decides if you are a good candidate for lasik before having the procedure. You might take comfort in knowing that many complications can be resolved through re-treatment.
