Meanwhile, other complications seem to have increased in femtosecond LASIK patients. Javaloy showed a 10 per cent increased incidence of diffuse lamellar keratitis with femtosecond-laser interventions versus less than one per cent with microkeratomes, and transient light sensitivity syndrome was 1.3 per cent in femtosecond laser patients (zero per cent with microkeratomes) according to Munoz. Another increased complication in femtosecond LASIK patients who had no previous choroidal neovascularisation included macular haemorrhage, according to a study by Principe.Also, Chung noted mycobacteria infections in femtosecond LASIK patients, explained by the fact that surgeons must use instruments to lift the flap and irrigate the interface.


"What concerns me is that if the person informing the patient is themselves poorly or inaccurately informed then how on earth can consent ever be truly informed?" Dr. Sarah Smith
