Rarely do LASIK complications cause significant or permanent vision loss which results in the patient ending up with worse vision than prior to the LASIK eye surgery procedure. Also, the risk of eye infections related to LASIK surgery is minimal. Patients will be given a prescription for an antibiotic eye drop medicine to use for approximately one week following LASIK to prevent infection during the early stage of healing.
Most patients who have LASIK are happy about their LASIK recovery time, with the vast majority reporting that their eyes felt fairly normal the day after having surgery.
