In brief: Vision, dryness
Most lasik surgeries do extremely well with the apparatus well worked out into its fourth generation of improvement.
The two major things seen are a final refraction not perfect (usually a little near sighted) and dryness. If it is strongly desirable to improve the vision to perfect an enhancement procedure can be done. Dryness is treated with drops and frequently lessens over time..

In brief: LASIK side effects
The two main lasik side effects are temporary dryness and temporary sensation of glare/halos around lights.
Both of these symptoms can be addressed and usually disappear after 2-3 months.
