Every year in the United States, around 1.3 million people have laser vision correction surgery. Three months after their surgeries, 70 percent of these people feel amazed and delighted with the results. The remaining 30 percent, however, experience side effects that leave them feeling dissatisfied to varying degrees. They may have uncomfortably dry eyes, blurry vision, and/or experience difficulty driving after dark. Overcoming Complications of LASIK and Other Eye Surgeries, written by board-certified medical and surgical ophthalmologist Ismail A. Shalaby, MD, PhD and medical writer Dean Haycock, is the first consumer book to bring answers and advice for people who are struggling with complications from eye surgery.
The authors begin with an explanation of how your eye works, and then continue with detailed information on what's normal and what's not after refractive eye surgeries - including LASIK-cataract surgery, and glaucoma surgery. The book then covers a comprehensive range of problems you could be experiencing, and discusses the various treatment options you may want to consider. This book will empower you to take the right steps to overcome your post-surgery eye problems.
