The risks associated with this procedure are moderate but that does not mean that they can be ignored. However, there have been a few clinical studies which have indicated that the chances of any vision related complication through this kind of surgery are extremely low, if not rare.

Another similar myth is that this vision correction eye surgery can lead to some complications such as night glare and dry eyes.

Moreover, if you do happen to experience some kind of problem after the surgery, then they can easily be treated with some treatments or medical care. As far as complications are concerned, some of the most common ones are glares and dry eyes which are moderate in nature. Most of these side effects last no more than 4 to 6 months time period even without any special kind of medical attention, which in itself is a relieving factor.
