Is LASIK risky?

As with any surgical procedure, there are risks. You should talk to your doctor about them. However, the chance of a serious problem with a LASIK procedure is very low. The most common complication is a temporary increase in dry eye symptoms but those usually go away after a short period of time. Some patients will require an additional treatment for fine tuning (these are known as enhancement procedures or retreatments) but these are no longer very common with laser technology and treatment nomograms.
