Lasik has become the most popular eye surgery procedure, and for good reason. Lasik is the least invasive, and people can experience good vision within a day. People who are near-sighted or far-sighted can be helped with Lasik.
Although a Lasik procedure does not take long, it is an extremely delicate operation that must be done by an expert eye surgeon. For some patients, there may be some post-operative problems, often referred to as higher-order aberrations. These aberrations may include seeing halos and starbursts, or what some describe as a ghosting effect. Quite often these are experienced at night, while the patient will have no problems in the daytime.
