"If it's a decrease in vision, if it's a halo, if it's a starburst, if it's a problem with night vision, these types of things would be considered adverse events to FDA, and we would want those reported because it has affected your vision," says Weick-Brady.

Over the last decade, the FDA has received only about 140 adverse event reports related to LASIK. It's possible that the unfortunate stories such as Schnell's are few and far between. It's also possible that surgeons and patients have underreported complications.

It's underreported!
