What are the risks of Epi-LASIK?

Unfortunately nothing in life is 100% risk free and this equally applies to laser eye surgery. Laser vision correction is a tried and tested form of surgery but complications do occur in a small minority of cases.

Complications with Epi-LASIK are:

  • Dry eye/s
  • Complications with the corneal flap
  • Over correction
  • Under correction
  • Glare
  • Halos
  • Starbursts

If you develop any of these then you may require follow up surgery.

The surgeon will advise you about the risks of Epi-LASIK, along with the benefits. You can then weigh these up before making a decision.
