This was posted by a patient suffering from night vision disturbances several years ago.

I can tell you, that glare, starburst, haloes and loss of night vision are not minor complications. They are life altering! After you have suffered with them long enough, you may not recognize yourself. The panic, fear and depression i get from this is staggering. I am truly amazed that i have been able to continue with my "so-called" life. The human spirit is amazing at what it can endure....but I will tell you this...if they say that adversity will make you stronger.. there is some truth to that... but it is only a half-truth in something like this..... because... although i do not show it outwardly... I am a broken person in my heart and soul... i don't enjoy life.. I endure it...Everything i do is made difficult by having damaged vision....no amount of positive thinking can change that.

A dramatic example of a patient who was not informed about these risks was detailed in a letter to the editor of the Journal of Cataract and Refractive Surgery in 1998 [6], from a patient with 9.0-mm scotopic pupils. He stated, ?I have grown fearful of the night and feel that I am its hostage. Psychologically, LASIK has proven to be a devastating choice for me?.
