Unlike many others, i read everything my doctor gave me and much on the web.
I was ready for the halos and starburst, but hopeful that they would not occur.
Not only did i get the halos and starburst, but i also had two others, and one far worse problem that was never disclosed to me by my doctor.
Lasik also can cause your near vision to become worse.
Immediately after the surgery i needed my reading glasses.
When i asked my doctor, he indicated, "oh yes, that sometimes happens" and explained the reason why.
Would have been nice to know before the surgery.
Far worse was a severe increase in floaters in one eye again never reported.
It is so bad that i literally cannot see out of that eye at certain times, and even in the best of cases, it's like someone put a piece of wax paper in front of that eye.
My surgeon was widely known and highly regarded even appearing on abc's 20/20 as a fixit of other people's problems, and he turned out to be a charlatan.
