Some Lasik patients report 'halo' effect up to a year later

Published on 07/18/19 / In News & Politics

FRIDAY, Dec. 2, 2016 -- Nine out of 10 Lasik laser eye surgery patients report satisfaction afterward. But a sizable percentage experience new visual disturbances -- like seeing halos around lights -- up to six months after the procedure, a new study finds. "While Lasik has long since been proven safe and effective over decades of use, a small but significant subset of patients report post-operative effects including glare, halos and other vision symptoms, as well as dry eyes," said Dr. Christopher Starr. He's an associate professor of ophthalmology at Weill Cornell Medicine/NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital in New York City.
