Is it completely safe to undergo Lasik eye surgery to correct our vision for seeing far distant objects?

+9 votes

Even though a lot of people had undergone Lasik eye surgery to correct their vision for seeing far distant, i am still quite hesitant to undergo the treatment. I used to wonder that if Lasik eye surgery is such a sure shot, then why is it that a lot of famous celebrities and politicians are still wearing glasses and contact lenses. There must be some kind of side effects which could be permanent in nature after Lasik eye surgery, and this must be the reason why a lot of people are still not confident about letting their eyes take the risk of a Lasik eye surgery. It can be quite tempting to try out the Lasik eye surgery because of the discomfort and inconvenience in wearing glasses and contacts lenses. Especially when it comes to wearing contact lenses, it is bothersome to wearing it every morning and take it off at the end of the day. If we happen to be in a hurry to go to work, we quickly put on our contact lenses in a improper way that could hurt our eyes and cause itchiness and redness.
