What are the chances of laser eye surgery messing up?

LasikExpert - Glenn Hagele
I work for a nonprofit Lasik patient advocacy organization. We don't provide Lasik, just Lasik information and we certify Lasik doctors' patient outcomes.

Our Quality Standards Advisory Committee evaluated multiple published studes, the FDA clinical trials, and thousands of patient outcomes to conclude that about 3% of vision correction surgery patients (all types of surgery, all types of patients) have some sort of unresolved complication at six months postop, with about 0.5% requiring extensive management or invasive intervention.


ppl say laser eye surgery has very small chance to fail if u r handled by good doctor w/ complete equipment, but i found 1 case, the patient was operated by good doctor w/ complete stuff but they mess up, and the patient blind forever . . . ow that was sad . . . . . for ur safety dont do the surgery if not neccessary.

If the procedure is performed by an unqualified Doctor, or with unsanitized equipment, and the proper prep is not done prior to the procedure, you could be rendered Blind.

These are your eyes that were talking about. Make sure that you don't go to one of those doctors that advertise $400.00 per eye. I found that most of the honest doctors are based in university settings. Why don't you try to get a consult from a medical center in a university. The state that you leave in should have a medical board website, they show if any doctor is under a law suit. Check that out before you decide on a surgeon. Any questions about refractive surgery just ask. I'll keep looking!!!!

There are risks with any surgery, but laser eye surgery has come along way and I would safely place your odds at 85 - 90 % successful. I have personally gone through it twice, and both were successful, and in fact the second surgery (2 years after the first) was more complicated yet less painful, I had vision restored within 24 hours.
