LASIK Risks?

2 posts in this topic

Hi, I've had HPPD since 2005. To various extents. Hasn't really bothered me in years to be honest, I can see floaters on a bright day if I look at the sky, my eyesight in the dark is pretty woeful and I get the occasional halo, flashing images but not nearly like it was ten years ago.

 

My main issue now is anxiety; not sure if this is related to HPPD or not but guessing it is. It's awful after drinking booze especially, at the stage now where it's just not worth it, I tried taking Benzos during hangovers but the side effects of that weren't worth it; shaking, mental dreams, DR etc.

 

Anyway, I'm thinking of getting LASIK surgery. I had bad eyesight before I got HPPD so I'm just trying to improve my eyesight in general; not trying to get rid of HPPD syptoms. My only concern is if LASIK will somehow make these symptoms worse, as I said, they are fine at the minute but just concerned that they may make it worse.

 

Anybody get the surgery and care to share experiences?

 

Thanks

I haven't had it, but you'll be fine. They'll put drops in your eyes that will temporarily dilate your pupils and might make it feel worse for a bit, but it won't last. HPPD is a "central" condition, meaning it's related to the brain and not the eyes.
