Femtosecond laser should not be standard of care, surgeon says

Quote:
"Seducing patients to get femtosecond LASIK as the standard is overkill," Theo Seiler, MD, PhD, said in a counterargument after Thomas Neuhann, MD, offered a stance in favor of femtosecond lasers.


Quote:
According to Dr. Seiler, recent papers published in peer-reviewed journals have concluded that flap creation does not affect visual outcomes. He also said that the frequency of transient light sensitivity, although improved, is still a drawback.

What does, "the frequency of transient light sensitivity, although improved, is still a drawback," mean?

I still have a bit of light sensitivity after LASIK that was done 3 months ago, and I was wondering if this is what my light sensitivity is.

Intralase has been associated with transient (temporary) light sensitivity (TLS). Some articles indicate that recent changes to the laser energy have reduced the incidence of TLS.

So what that means is this -- The frequent occurence of TLS after Intralase-LASIK is a drawback when compared to regular (blade) LASIK, even though it's not as frequent as it used to be.
