Not everyone qualifies for laser eye surgery. Military personnel, pilots and others with an occupational need for perfect vision should exercise caution, because it is impossible to guarantee a perfect outcome. In addition, the FDA lists several medical conditions as contraindications to surgery.
Contraindications are reasons why a person absolutely should not have surgery. They include:

  • Pregnancy and nursing
  • Immune deficiency: HIV, etc.
  • Collagen vascular diseases: rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, etc.
  • Keratoconus: a degenerative corneal disease
  • Certain medications: Accutane, amiodarone and triptan family migraine treatments

While contraindications are almost always a “black or white”, “yes or no” issue, warnings represent more of a gray zone and surgery is sometimes still possible. Common warnings include:

  • Diabetes
  • Herpes Keratitis: herpes infection of the cornea
  • Severe dry eye disease
  • Severe allergies

Precautions are other issues that necessitate caution. Precautions include:

  • Age: Patients must be at least 18 to 21 years old, depending on the laser system.
  • Stability: Laser vision correction should be avoided if the eyeglass prescription is still changing.
  • Corneal disease, abnormality or prior surgery
  • Thin corneas
  • Large pupils
  • Glaucoma
  • Uveitis: inflammation of the inside of the eye
  • Blepharitis: inflammation of the eyelid margin

In addition to the issues that affect one’s candidacy for surgery, laser vision correction patients should be aware of the potential side effects.
More common side effects include:

  • Delayed epithelial healing: slow healing the eye’s surface (typically after a flapless procedure)
  • Diffuse lamellar keratitis: inflammation under a flap
  • Dry eyes
  • Epithelial ingrowth: migration of the surface epithelium underneath the flap
  • Flap striae: wrinkles in the flap
  • Glare and halos around lights at night
  • Haze: superficial corneal opacification found almost exclusively with flapless procedures
  • Over or undercorrection necessitating a second treatment
  • Pain and light sensitivity: common within the first 3 to 5 days after a flapless procedure
Less common side effects include:
  • Loss of best-corrected vision: postoperative vision with glasses that is not as clear as the preoperative vision was with glasses
  • Decentration of the laser treatment
  • Dislocated flaps
  • Ectasia: a region of the cornea that becomes progressively more distorted
  • Bad flaps: creation of an irregularly shaped flap that causes abortion of the procedure Infection
