Conditions That May Occur After Laser Eye Surgery

Laser eye surgery is one of the most popular and safe treatments for refractive errors. The process is generally very fast and both the operation time and recovery time are short. The fact that it has many advantages and the short recovery period makes laser eye surgery preferred by patients and we see that there are generally high satisfaction rates. Although it offers a fast recovery and a fast operation process, there may be some complications and complaints after laser eye surgery. Let’s talk about the issues to be considered and the situations that may occur after laser eye surgery by stating that the patient should not worry about these complications, which are generally temporary.

What Happens After Laser Eye Surgery?

First of all, as we mentioned above, most complaints are temporary and experienced during the healing process. So what can patients experience?

Situations you may experience

  • You may feel a headache after the operation. But this will be short-lived. Your doctor can give you advice about this.
  • You may experience blurred vision in the first days. Again, this is part of the healing process and is a normal condition. We observe improvement over time.
  • Your sensitivity to light may increase. We can say that it is a condition that gives short-term discomfort with the effect of the operation.
  • Watery eyes may occur.
  • You may also experience short-term stinging and burning sensation.
  • You may complain of dry eyes for a certain period of time after the operation. Optimizing the eye surface just before the operation will bring the possibility of dry eye to very low levels.
  • You may experience short-term pain after the operation. Again, we can say that this is a temporary situation.

All these effects are possible situations that can be experienced after the operation. If these complaints last too long after laser eye surgery, you should definitely consult your doctor. Of course, it should be noted that you should not neglect your routine controls in this process. You should also use the medications given to you by your doctor without interruption.
