Q Patients with pupil diameter of more than 6.0 mm should be informed of the significant risk of night vision disturbances after epiLASIK. Generally, these symptoms abate over time. Just needed an understanding of this.

Ans.  An important point to understand night vision issues. This is independent of LASIK and EpiLASIK but is more to do with the capabilities of the laser system.

In our experience with the laser technology we use,  we have never faced permanent night vision problem. In our practice, till date we have not seen glares, haloes etc. This also depends on one test which checks your pupil size dynamically in light and dark, which is part of your evaluation process with us. In fact our laser is one of the best for re correcting such issues of older lasers with Topolink treatments
