Almost always, a retina that redetaches has a new retinal tear. Best wishes. ...Read more

Could you tell me if my eyes are light sensitive, will the red laser used during lasik be hard to stare at?

Probably not: The lights from the microscope are sometimes bright so that the surgeon can see what he/she is doing during the procedure. Fortunately, during the part when you have to carefully look at the red fixation target, the other lights are usually turned way down low to make it easier for you to see and fixate on the red target. You should be fine! ...Read more

When you are fully recovered from your surgery, your eye surgeon will refract your eyes and provide you with the new and correct prescription. This will neutralize the image differences. ...Read more
