Possible night vision side effects that sometimes develop after having laser eye surgery include glare and halos which can make night driving difficult.
Bear in mind, it is not uncommon for patients to experience temporary night vision problems after Lasik which occasionally lasts for days or even weeks. This temporary side effect, which results from normal post-operative corneal swelling, is very normal and, in the vast majority of cases, will disappear in time.
Post laser eye surgery, night vision problems which continue for longer may be due to the following:
- Corneal Flap Complications: On occasion, the flap produced in LASIK eye surgery does not adhere correctly to the eye after it is put back in place. This can cause light entering the eye to bend irregularly causing night vision disturbance.
- Residual Refractive Error: This refers to a post-operative uncorrected visual error.
- Pupil Enlargement: In certain conditions after Lasik, your pupil diameter increases such that it is larger than the actual treatment zone. Because your eye pupil naturally widens in low light, the effects are more noticeable at night.
