LASIK eye surgery is seen by many as a cure-all for a wide array of vision problems. While LASIK surgery has a great success rate and safety record in helping thousands attain better vision and eliminate the need for glasses and contacts, it’s still possible for complications to arise on rare occasions. It is important to be aware of these possible complications so that you can make a fully informed decision before moving forward with your procedure.

Some of the possible complications of LASIK include:
