IN THIS ARTICLE
When should I seek medical care for complications of vision correction surgery?
Most people who undergo laser vision correction experience very little discomfort following the procedure and are happy with their results. If you have any questions or concerns, contact your surgeon.
Some warning signs following laser vision correction include the following:
If you experience any of these warning signs, you should immediately contact your doctor, day or night. Don't put this off to see if it will get better over the next few days.
In general, ophthalmologists prefer that, if there are any concerns, you call the office directly, day or night, rather than go to a hospital's emergency department because evaluation of the eye after surgery requires specialized equipment and knowledge, which are usually not available in the emergency department.
