LASIK and Night Vision

Night vision difficulties are a common LASIK side effect. Some studies have found that nearly 20 percent of LASIK recipients face night vision problems including increased glare and halos around lights, but these side effects are most often temporary and self-correct within the first few months following LASIK surgery. If the problem persists, you should contact Beverly Hills eye surgeon Dr. Rajesh Khanna for an examination to ensure your vision is stabilizing as planned.

LASIK Recovery

While some people experience instant vision correction with no side effects following LASIK, it is not uncommon to experience short-term issues such as night vision difficulties and dry eyes while your vision adjusts. This is rarely anything to worry about, but your concerns should be brought to the attention of Dr. Khanna if issues persist or seem to get worse.

Dr. Khanna utilizes state-of-the-art technology and exercises great care when performing LASIK to help guard against side effects, but there is no guarantee that your surgery will be without some complications. This will be discussed with you in more detail during your initial consultation.

If you are experiencing night vision difficulties following your Beverly Hills LASIK surgery, please contact the Khanna Institute of LASIK & Refractive Surgery today to schedule an appointment with our knowledgeable eye surgeon.
