LASIK Eye Surgery | Risk of Eye Trauma | Lasik Risks

Some patients, by virtue of their occupation or recreational pursuits, have an increased risk of eye trauma. Following LASIK, there is a relatively rare incidence of the flap being dislodged or damaged as a consequence of a knock to the eye. Consideration should therefore be given to PRK in preference to LASIK in individuals who play contact sports frequently or are tradespeople.
